  Why do you think that x86_64-64 can't do the same ?  Provided the 
kernel can do 32-bit emulation (OK, that is probably not mandatory for 
pure64), both variants of x86_64 should have the same capabilities for 

  For ppc, 'G5' macs (970 processors) need a 64-bit kernel anyway, so you 
have to go beyond the book to build the headers, C cross-compiler and 
binutils (only).  Therefore, they can equally chroot while trying to 
build ppc64 multilib.
