We were talking on #mingw-w64 about how cumbersome building a multilib
toolchain is.  It's surely possible, but it's a lot of work, and so a
lot of people just plain don't bother with it.

Jon, however, already did all the work in a reproducible way such that
it's already done and doesn't need to be re-done.  So it's not that
big of a deal, really, that building multilib is cumbersome.  Jon did
it, and recorded the steps.  So....  it's not really a headache for
anyone else.
