Thanks for the answer and point me out I asked the wrong list.
I wasn't ignoring them on purpose though, sorry for the confusion here.
Kind Regards,

 You're asking on the wrong list - BLFS is for the packages which
come after the basic system  (server apps, or desktop).  For the
moment, LFS itself is resolutely x86 and 32-bit-only.

 I hesitate to point you to because you seem to be
deliberately ignoring them, but grub is covered in the clfs multilib
x86_64 book, and the pure64 version (x86_64-64, otherwise known as
amd64 in some circles) uses lilo because grub needs 32-bit libraries.
