Cross-LFS build method

Hmm. Most of us don't choose the host system because of speed (those
going from 32 to 64, be it SPARC, MIPS, IA64, AMD64). Let's say I've
got a really
nice shiny Athlon 64 4000+. I want to make a 64 bit LFS for it. Both
host and target are the same. I have a 32 bit distro running on it. I
still have to use cross-compiling techniques. Isn't that the situation
for most users nowadays?
