Only in linux-binutils, for some reasons it's not in the binutils CVS.

Not wholly with current glibc. Glibc calls personality(0) at init
time thus dropping 32-bit mode. This call was removed in the glibc-2.2
branch long ago and in the 2.1 branch quite recently, so next glibc
snapshots/releases will be OK.
Meanwhile you have to place personality(0x0800000) before first malloc()
in your application if you want to use "-taso".

And I won't worry about that since it's legal now to use
DU Netscape on Linux.
