Hi Apostolos,

Yes there is. Try to run a 64bit binary on

a 32bit machine. Also just because

No doubt about that.  But how is this relevant to the discussion at hand?

SOLARIS contains both 32 and 64bit binaries
and libraries it does not mean this is correct.

What do you mean by `correct'?  It's perfectly correct to run 32-bit
binaries on a machine that is also capable of running 64-bit ones.  In
fact, you'd be surprised that even in unexpected cases the 32-bit
ones may perform better than the 64-bit binaries.

There is a lot of pro vs con on multi-lib systems and whether or not it is correct to have/use them. I tend to lean toward Apostolos' opinion that such systems are just wrong.
