On Solaris the default config for GCC is to build with multilib
support, i.e. same compiler supports both 32 and 64-bit code generation.

When I build GCC, I normally enable multilib and tell GCC configure
script to default to 64-bit mode. As long as your GCC supports
multilib, it doesn't matter if it generates 32 or 64-bit code by
default. If you look at my GCC wrapper scripts, I explicitly enable
64-bit mode when using pkgsrc. I don't see any reason to use 32-bit
packages on modern hardware.

I uploaded my GCC build to google drive, it supports C, C++ and Ada.

There are two instances


They are both the same, but bootstrap has util/ subfolder that contains
useful GNU tools like tar, make, patch, etc, that are used for building
and testing other versions of GCC from source.
