Description Robert Coffree 2010-07-27 04:46:23 UTC
At present the ebuild for dev-lang/icc 11.0072 downloads the icc package that will produce code for the running arch. eg. on i32 it will download the 32bit version and so on.

When building the kernel for instance, on 64 bit linux, the bootstrap code needs the compiler to produce 32bits for the bootstrap.

Perhaps, like adobe-flash which has a 32bit and a 64bit flag, it would be possible to have one such feature also, which would download the appropriate version and set the environment variables for the installed compilers.

Reproducible: Always
