Yes, Even my old 32bit systems are the slowest, those are the machines
which most of the time build and run LFS.

No problem about making x64 to default as long as pure 32bit systems are
still supported. Unfortunatly there are many Linux distros which do
nolonger support 32bit for whatever reason. Don't let LFS be one of
those. For router/firewall and such, small fanless Atom-machines do work
