Well.. since some time, it seems that portage finally implemented the multilib building, rather than installing the precompiled emul-linux-* packages.

But the problem is, that not everything seems prepared for this new build system, for example, I can't even emerge --emptytree system without any package wanting emul packages and blocking all the rest.

My question is:

Is there any roadmap for it to be completed and get rid of all emul-linux-x86-* packages? I have to disable 32bit ABI for the moment, but I think it is a great idea, and a very gentooish one!

So go for it :D

After having spent some time messing with updates to emul*-medialibs and emul*-soundlibs this morning I have the same question.

It seems that the developers are going about this very half-assed.
I had to add a lot of packages to get past the stupid "You need something else added to show a proper emerge"

WHY?????

Is it really that hard to get it together and do things all at once? Where is a damned roadmap?
