Well, Thomas Pegg is going to start work on that branch in the near 
future. If you would like to help, stay subscribed here, watch the 
discussions and specifically look for when we create a x86_64 branch for 
our build scripts. Then offer comments, suggestions, patches etc where 
you see a need. Ask Thomas if there's anything specific you could do to 
help as well.

Also, you would need to understand our build scripts. They're a series 
of Makefiles that get run by make in succession. You can check them out 
via Subversion like so (Note that they're undergoing some cleanup atm):

svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/livecd/x86/trunk lfs-livecd

Thanks for volunteering!
