Multilib question

First you have my deapest sinament about your family's loss.  I know
this is a tough time.


Could someone explain what multilib is for.  I get the feeling it is
Grand.. I just don't understand enough about it to know why.

But never wanting to be behind, today with 20020215 SS I installed with

../rtems-ss-20020215/configure --enable-multilib --prefix=/opt/rtems
make RTEMS_BSP="" preinstall
make RTEMS_BSP="" 

so now what.?
So I tried 
make RTEMS_BSP="<bsp>" preinstall  (working through a custom one )
make RTEMS_BSP="<bsp>" 
make install?

I have hunted around the past archive and online docs but have not found
any reference to multilib that explains it.

Thank you
