I think it can do that. I think the only problem is that it
can't link because it doesn't have any 32 bit libs to link to.

I've been trying to compile gcc myself too. I have a few
problems with it:
- It generated "lib" and "lib64" dirs and then tried to find what
he put in lib64 in lib. I work around this would stopping it
temporary and move everthing in one dir and symlink them. I
have no idea how to really fix this.
- We have no ada compiler so we have to disable support for it in
- We probably also have to disable multilib else it's trying to
build 32 bit too, but I'm not really sure.
- It also fails somewhere packaging gcc-3.3, it was missing some
file but can't remember which.
Any help on any of those problems is always welcome.
