i don't think it is.  you're trying to guess the default multilib dir.  x32 is 
another x86 related multilib (it installs into libx32 ... not complicate at 
all).  the mips example isn't limited to IRIX; Linux supports them too.  also 
assuming how the system has configured things based purely on tuples is a good 
way to fail.

asking the compiler (gcc) for its multilib OS path is the closest atm to 
reliably getting the right answer.
