[lfs-dev] LFS and 32-bit systems

Hi Bruce,

I have a 32 bit machine on which a 32 bit lfs system could
theoretically be tested but :

1. It is yet powered by a 6.6. lfs that I never upgraded and I
think that it is not possible to upgrade directly from 6.6. to
the present 7.10.

2. I have not much time to do tests.
