 Cross-LFS has always done that for pure64.  It's a _long_ while
since I last built clfs x86_64-64 and many things have changed, but
the main difference is that clfs still uses a specfile - their build
is now quite different from how LFS has evolved.

 If you do something like that, then yes, a few _blfs_ packages will
probably get confused by the absence of /lib64.  OTOH, you would get
a nice clean system - but the build for x86_64 will be somewhat
different from what is currently in LFS.

 I've a feeling that someone, perhaps our late colleague Andy, used
to build 64-bit LFS without the symlink - but I've no idea of the
details about how to do it (and that was before libstdc++ and g++
became required for building gcc, so the details would have to change
for gcc-4.8).
