PHP 64-bit only


Drop support for 32-bit builds


Current status

PHP is not a library, so is not multilib. 32-bit consumes builder CPU/time, but nothing is shipped in the repositories.

A lot of projects don't have 32-bit CI, so this may raise FTBFS (10 in F40 Mass Rebuild)


  • All PHP extension packages are rebuilt without 32-bit
  • flamegraph PR #1 open
  • libvpx PR #7 merged
  • libvpx8 PR #1 open
  • lsp-plugins 32-bit disabled
  • mapserver PR #4 merged
  • owfs PR #2 merged
  • swig PR #7 open
  • uwsgi 32-bit disabled
