But this isn't related to the priority problem, right?
Perhaps I haven't been clear enough; the question is:
- exec_elf32 is a module, and is enabled with EXEC_ELF32 (#define).
- exec_elf32 (module) is dormant on 64bit systems.
- linux32 and netbsd32 *don't need* exec_elf32 (module), but need
- my plan is to keep EXEC_ELF32 defined on 64bit systems, but to disable
- Problem: linux32 has exec_elf32 (module) as dependency.
- Question: do I remove this dependency, given the fact that netbsd32
too does not have it?
