thats a real good idea - im glad someone does that - until about
a year ago, i was using an i686/openrc system primarily, for that
same reason, to try catching bugs before users report them - but
it had that limitation of having to reboot to a x86_64 system in
order to run libremakepkg - i was planning to install a fresh
"every-day" system on a new disk soon - if that trick works with
libremakepkg, i will make it an i686/openrc system again
