How do I switch? My compiler just uses LINIXLIBC6 whatever I do. Is
there a way of telling it otherwise? Do I have to reinstall from
scratch? Is there an installer that knows I386_LINUX? Last time I
looked there didn't seem to be.

> The name LINUXLIBC6 has 20+ years of outdated legacy encoded in it. 1) The assumption that Linux is x86 only. 2) The fact that libc5 back in kernel 1.x days, pre-pthreads or at least pre-NPTL, was incompatible with libc6. There is more motivation imho for pthreads vs. userthreads targets, and C vs. gcc-based vs. LLVM-based targets. (LLVM-based should be link compatible with one of them though?)
And how do I ask for the C code generator?
