BLFS is not tested on x86_64, so don't expect everything will work
there for you.  If you're lucky, someone else has put info on the Wiki
concerning non-x86 arches or mutilib.

One concern is that glib-1.2.10 has long since been maintained.  I may
be wrong here, but you may just have to replace config.guess and
config.sub with more recent ones.  Unpack your binutils tarball and
copy config.guess and config.sub over the ones in glib-1.2.10.  In
fact, you should keep these files handy because this situation may
arise again.

That's all the help I can provide because I don't have an x86_64.


P.S.  Please don't top post.
