  The only reason I use the term 'BCLFS' is for the B (beyond), the C is 
only significant as part of 'CLFS'.  So no, the cross-compiling is not 
part of the issue.

  In a few cases (strace, dhcp-3.0.2) we have needed to alter package 
source to cope with a newer glibc, more generally we have to cope with

(a) different build instructions for non-x86
(b) altered instructions for X on pure64, and to an extent on multilib
(c) packages that don't recognise newer platforms
(d) lib64 on multilib (particularly, the packages which ignore --libdir)
(e) packages that aren't 64-bit clean (e.g. latest abiword)
