Thanks for the reply.

I read the page, and it says (as you did), that a pure 64-bit build is 
possible with the LFS book. However, I'm still stuck with my problem when 
building Gettext. Should I add the -fPIC CFLAG when making?

This is only my first time at creating an LFS system, so I'm new to having 
to worry about architecture.
