I really don't have a good answer to your question, as I'm guessing
you're talking about a Pure-64 build (all 64-bit libraries). However,
I've built systems on x86-64 platform using multilib configurations,
so normal Grub works on those builds. I've not yet built a Pure-64

I also have the changes required to build 64-bit, except my notes
are for LFS SVN as it stands right now and more geared towards
multilib. I know that Jeremy already has 64bit covered in his private
branch, so I suppose there is no real need for additional build notes.
Unless, or course, Jeremy is interested in seeing other methods, just
for comparative analysis.

I would say my builds more closely resemble a Cross-LFS build than
Jeremy's private branch, however, and I don't believe my multilib
systems are I18n compatible at all.
