  My guess is glibc, mainly because it throws spanners into the works 
when you least expect it :)  Did you run make check on glibc when you 
built it?  I really don't see how booting or chrooting will cause you to 
create different code in the final system, because in either case you 
use the same tools.  Different kernel versions can sometimes upset the 
testsuites, particularly for glibc, but that isn't directly attributable 
to 'boot or chroot'.

  My own multilib is now officially *old* (started 20051017 with a newer 
glibc than was then in the book) and I think we've upgraded glibc since 
then. I'm also probably using older package versions (gnome-2.10 era). 
I'm intermittently struggling through blfs, but with the aim of building 
a 32-bit firefox.  I've now got past glib2 : had to specify --build and 
--host for -m32, but the 64-bit version gave me no problems at all. 
Before that, I used the 20050930 book to build x86_64-64 and had no 
problems with glib2 or firefox.
