OK, one follow up please.
On the x86_64 system, I can build many programs for both architectures
by adding the option --target=x86_64,i386 in the rpmbuild. However,
for some programs, such as firefox, the i386 rpm fails to build on the
x86_64 system. So in that case, I go to a i386 and build firefox.
Is there any reason why that firefox.i386 rpm cannot be put into the
x86_64 directory for the multilib purpose?
Know what I mean?
