I realize there used to be a differnece, but it seems the concept of an open-source base distribution never really worked and has faded. So if you mean this to be actually different than Mac OS X, it would be good to talk about that, although that's separate from your proposed change. > I'd like to change the default ABI on Darwin, so that we use ABI=64 on > x86_64 hosts unless the user specifies --abi during bootstrap.

While I have an Intel Mac that is i386 only, I now have netbsd-7 i386 on it, and most people would have recycled it by now. > It may be that we want to add a case for ppc64, but I don't have any > hardware to test that on.

But sure, people who are still using Darwin/powerpc (which is really obsolete, as I understand there are no versions of the OS receiving maintenance). > This brings us in line with what users expect (I've had a few people > query this previously). Any objections? I don't understand the IRIX hunk (but I don't object either). So if you mean to commit just the Darwin change, I think you should.
