i understand that i cannot run 64bit software on my 32bit host,  but 
with the commands given in the book *before booting into the 64bit lfs* 
perl does not compile because it tries run ./try which is for some 
reason compiled as 64bit which is what led me to believe the book may be 
wrong as it does not use and CC="" commands. I know the perl was 
recently moved and thought that this may have been overlooked and just 
wanted to make sure its not me getting it wrong.
