Jan Steffens and me spent the this weekend putting together a multilib
toolchain and a clean lib32-glibc package. I wanted to do this for at
least two years, and we finally managed to do it on FrOSCon now. This is
the plan of attack on this:

* Maintain the PKGBUILDs in svn-community/${pkgname}/trunk/
* Create a separate repo 'multilib',
* Remove ALL multilib packages from community. Do NOT mix pure 64 bit
with multilib. All multilib must go into the new multilib repository.
* Rebuild all multilib packages with the multilib compiler to solve the
numerous problems encountered by the hackish "copy our 32 bit packages
into another path" approach.
* Find TUs and Devs willing to work on multilib (please add your name to

Any comments are welcome. We will upload the multilib packages and
PKGBUILDs into a small test repository in a minute for review.
