	Actually, I didn't mention a specific non-x86 architecture, but am thinking 
more along the lines of smaller  embedded processors like the Intel XScale. 

	It looks like more research into this is needed, but -seems- like it -should- 
be possible to build an LFS from a host system (like x86) for a completely 
different target..  I think the way the LFS is built is basically the same 
way embedded Linux is built for these processors, but I could be way off base
