Moving multilib files out of the core does not mean that it is being
permanently broken, it only means that you have to start pulling in the
contrib directory if you want to use multilib.  That is, we're not
killing the feature entirely, we're only splitting it out of automake
proper into its own project, where it will hopefully get more attention
than what the current level it is getting while embedded in automake.
Re-read the list where we discussed this - gcc is doing a better
maintenance job of multilib support in the first place, so this move is
intended to point you towards the better-maintained source in the first
