You might want to consider examining how Greg Schafer does 32-bit, 64-bit and biarch.  It's simple and clean.  I just built a biarch system following his instructions to see how it works, and I had no problems.  

I haven't using BLFS or CBLFS with it yet to see if there are any problems there.  I remember some problems with biarch a couple of years ago.
