We rely on being able to build 32- and 64-bit binaries as part of the same build. How exactly is that supposed to work with mock?

Well in our production environment we require clean chroots be created
for every build, so we create a clean i386 chroot to build the i386
binaries, we create a clean x86_64 chroot to build the x86_64 binaries,
we create a clean ppc chroot to create the ppc binaries, I think you see
where I'm going with this.

Obviously your requirements are different. (For us, I've no idea how hard something like the above would be to achieve on OSF 5.x or Irix 6.x. Yes, I work with those platforms.)

Our requirements are that one build environment produces one package containing both 32- and 64-bit binaries. (Including, in one case, on Windoze, and don't even get me started on what a PITA *that* is.) We support enough platforms without multiplying the support cost with separate packages based on what size you want your pointers to be...
