add multilib support for sparc64 to rpm
Jeff, also note that I did _NOT_ do the sparcv8 regex, you said to
submit what I had and you would try to do fix the regex for sparcv8.
Fixed all that is relevant for rpm. Will get to
fixing the regexes for sparcv8 in installplatform
as soon as I get to see one.
Off to teach config.sub about sparcv8.
Could you add sparcv8 parallel to sparcv9 in config.sub? Thanks.
Jeff, anything from a SparcStation4 or above is sparcv8 compatible,
including all UltraSPARCs. You should not have trouble getting access
to one, if all else fails, ask Peter Jones.
I think you want the changes in redhat-rpm-config too, no?
Patch sent to config maintainer.
will this work as a test box?

Following on to Comment 7, the sparcv8 patch
I sent upstream to the config maintainer, was accepted.
Russ: Yes, an Ultra 1 is sparcv9 (and thus, sparcv8), but to be fair,
there are already several sparcv8 compatible machines running within
Red Hat, most within 20 feet of Jeff's desk. :)
Fixes are in redhat-rpm-config
