No, it will not cause you any problems later on, provided you just need
a 64 bit system.  In fact you must have this if you are just building
64 bit,  I was going to build 32 bit glibc later, but have never
needed it.

The alternative is to follow Ryan's scripts


You would then build both 32 bit and 64 bit libraries.
