LILO could to solve the x86_64 problems, but the issue still will remain on 
the other archs.

Then, at least for consistency, I will prefer an homogeneous solution for all 
archs. If that implies to build some 32 bits tools to can compile the 
bootloaders, go for it. 

But, if possible, try to keep that 32 bits tools separate from the 64 bits 
system (i,e, installing they on /tools/32 or /opt/32).
