Good question. As a counter question - should the libraries generated by the
'normal' VC8 compiler be named <libname>-vc80-mt-x32-1_35.dll ?
That being said: is the address model (and architecture) _really_ a property
of the tool, or is the cross-compiler a tool variant? I'd lean towards the
latter, meaning that the tool part of the generated library names should be
changed for x64 builds. I mean, you can't invoke the regular x86 compiler
with a /x64 switch - you are executing a separate image when you do
Maybe the tool version part of the tag should include the information, i.e.
