 I'm worried about how you worked around the problems you had
building 6.7.  For me, building LFS-6.7 and a few almost-6.7 svn
versions on x86_64 was straightforward.

 For the record, I'm seeing intermittent segfaults in X with both
radeon r100 and r200 video cards since I moved to a newer xorg-server
/ radeon driver, and yes, the last thing mentioned is libc, but that
doesn't necessarily mean the problem started there.  In my case I
suspect the radeon driver (my problem is unpredictable, sometimes I
can be using X for over 12 hours without a problem, and I suspect
one of the screensavers is what triggers it).  A couple of times,
I've left a machine compiling something, and come back to find X had
crashed during the compile, but each time the next compile worked.

 I don't use OOo, but I have compiled that version of python, and
more-recent versions of mysql, without segfaults.

 Care to mention what problems you had when you were building 6.7 ?

 There are undoubtedly still things in BLFS which don't build on
x86_64, but your problem seems to be different.
