 Sorry for not understanding, when u mean 64-bit system u refer to the VM
host which is Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit? Or my laptops OS which is windows 10
64-bit? i don't get it why is it a problem, since my VM runs on 32-bit.

A strange thing that i have not noticed is this.
Binaries 6.12 - 6.16 compiled with the old gcc have the correct paths on
shared libraries on ldd.
Thus because i keep vm snapshots, i skipped building 6.17 gcc and moved to
Then 6.18 Bzip2 without having build the 6.17 gcc, had the correct paths
for shared libraries on ldd.
Thus the problem lies on 6.17 gcc.

Then I reverted the snapshot with the 6.17 gcc been build and i inspected
the dummy.log.
I found these references with 'tools' that i didnt like that much..


COLLECT_GCC_OPTIONS='-v' '-mtune=generic' '-march=pentiumpro'
 /usr/libexec/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/6.2.0/collect2 -plugin
-plugin-opt=-fresolution=/tmp/ccZrO4rT.res -plugin-opt=-pass-through=-lgcc
-plugin-opt=-pass-through=-lgcc_s -plugin-opt=-pass-through=-lc
-plugin-opt=-pass-through=-lgcc -plugin-opt=-pass-through=-lgcc_s
--eh-frame-hdr -m elf_i386 -dynamic-linker /tools/lib/ld-linux.so.2
-L/tools/lib /tmp/cc5hD6yA.o --verbose -lgcc --as-needed -lgcc_s
--no-as-needed -lc -lgcc --as-needed -lgcc_s --no-as-needed
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/6.2.0/crtend.o /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-

And then another strange thing is that when i inspected the dummy.log of
6.10 i found that in
the option -dynamic-linker is pointing to /lib/ld-linux.so.2 and not
-dynamic-linker /tools/lib/ld-linux.so.2 as it is in 6.17 gcc.

  i keep snapshots for every group of packages been built (i split section
in 8 groups of packages), i revert them and i dont  reboot.
