What? Are you talking about building *both* 32 and 64-bit libraries at
once. How do you handle naming the library? What directory do they get
installed in. For now, I say no. Build the 32-bit libs and install,
then the 64-bit libs and install (into separate locations). Are you
aware of any OS that supports 32 and 64-bit libraries in the same
directory? I know Solaris and AIX don't do this.

And, if you're going to *link* a program against the library you've
created, do you then generate both 32 and 64-bit versions as well?
