This is hrev53967.
When 32 bit appliaction support will be added to x86_64 Haiku (https://review.haiku-os.org/c/haiku/+/427), where will be 2 senondary architectures x86 and x86_gcc2. So primary x86_gcc2 architecture on 32 bit Haiku will become secondary architecture on 64 bit Haiku and installing of x86_gcc2 packages become impossible.
Possible solution to this problem is perform automatic remapping of package patch to secondary architectures. For example if some x86_gcc2 package has
lib/libtest.so, it will be remapped to
lib/x86_gcc2/libtest.so on 64 bit Haiku. After introducing this feature secondary architectures suffixes can be dropped in HaikuPorts and x86 or x86_gcc2 architecture can be directly used.
Path remapping will also simplify cross compiling: it will became possible to install any achitecture package on any Haiku architecture, if architecure don't match path remapping will be used.
Targets of path remapping are
develop/headers and may be others. Some options for controlling remapping are required, for example there are platform-independent and platform-dependent headers.
