First thing, it is possible, and there are more updated versions of glibc
than 2.3.2.  I managed to build it a few times, and have made notes of what
I did.  the notes are here, http://hilltop.bradley.edu/~aneebel/lfs-stuff I
believe that Ryan has also built on x86_64, but I don't know what he had to
do.  There is a message somewhere in the archives where a person built a
64bit system from a 32bit host, but I don't know where it is.  One quick
note about my notes, they are incomplete in places.  Sometimes they may
refer to a patch that is not on the server, which probably means I did the
hack but never generated a patch, and meant to later.
