LFS on an UltraSPARC (GLIBC woes)

I am new to LFS in general, and my first attempt has been on a Sun ULTRA5

I have zipped right a long to the part where you go chroot and compile 
glibc-2.2.4 (with the exception of a problem encountered while compiling gcc
where it seems I had to specify my architecture as sparc-linux as opposed
to sparc64-linux to get it to compile correctly).

This is merely a meak cry for help, no errors pasted in... I wanted to get 
a feel for other peoples work in this area and see if anyone recommends 
using certain configure options for building gcc and glibc properly on a
Sun Ultra5.  I get the feeling this has a lot to do with compiling a 32 bit 
userland on a 64 bit architecture, but again, I am a newbie to LFS and to 
linux on a sparc/sparc64 architecture.

Any help is much appreciated.
