Many thanks! I had found the sed to gcc/config/i386/linux64.h through
my own stumblings but I had'nt worked out the t-linux64 bit. For the
record, these three steps seem to do the trick to avoid needing the 
/lib64 symlink: 

1 Don't make the /lib64 symlink (obviously;) 
2 Glibc needs a sed:
  sed -i 's|/lib64|/lib|' sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/configure
3 GCC needs an extra sed to the specfile
  -e sed 's/lib64/lib/'
and a sed to the source:
  sed -i 's/lib64/lib/' gcc/config/i386/{linux64.h,t-linux64}
