Funny location for .a libs in XFree86.3.1.2 ?

Funny location for .a libs in XFree86.3.1.2 ?

Re: the XFree.3.1.2 release directory at

a.out/X312aslb.tgz contains the lib/*.a archives, elf/X312aslb.tgz
contains  lib/i486-linuxaout/*.a., and elf/X312alib.tgz contains

This arrangement seems strange. Wouldn't a person installing only elf be
missing the *.a libs?

1. /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux and /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-linux

Hi Linuxers,

I just got a new copy of gcc-2.4.5 and source code of the pl11.
After having done the installation of gcc-2.4.5, I realised that
I have an extra directory: /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux.
The question is whether I need to keep the old gcc stuff under
the i386-linux.  I really like to clean it up so as to save 5.1
meg disk space (another poor Linux user  ;-( ).

Your answer is very appreciated.  Please send answer directly
to my address or the corresponding interest parties to reduce
the network load.  Thank you in advance.
