Yes, I couldn't get gcc to compile w/out disable-multilib.  I'll take a look
at the port later tonight.  One of the things I've not had time to work on
is getting native 32-bit compatibility working, so if you've got it here,
that's great!  Looks like yesterday there was a whole bunch of base & opt
updates -- I'll be checking out what that means for crux64, too.

Previously I had simply repackaged the vanilla crux-2.1 glibc as glibc32 for
crux64.  Looks like you have a port here for a native build of glibc32 --
very nice!

You're welcome!  

And I did see your recent e-mail about libpng -- not ignoring you, just
busy.  Had a Solaris disk array crash, taking an Oracle database along with
it, so I've been busy (and tired), but I'll have time tonight.

Thanks for your work, danm!
