I am not a member of the LFS development team but I do build
LFS on my two 32-bit Intel Pentium 4 computers, about at every
0.2 increment in version number these days. I don't have
a 64 bit computer yet. Due to the excessively long time it takes
me to build LFS, I don't know if I could be of much use in
testing. But I do rely on being able to build 32-bit LFS and
