[lfs-support] 64 bit host machine build question

I'm doing the 5.7 glibc-2.19 step and everything seems to be going
along swimmingly. But the test program mentioned in the Caution isn't
exactly what is desired:

lfs:/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build$ echo 'main(){}' > dummy.c
lfs:/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build$ $LFS_TGT-gcc dummy.c
lfs:/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build$ readelf -l a.out | grep ': /tools'
  [Requesting program interpreter: /tools/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2] 

While the Caution says to expect the /tools/lib64 part, it doesn't say
anything about the '-x86-64' I have appended to the name. Is this going
to be okay or is something amiss here?
