I didn't mean it's supported by gentoo but that is possible to build it
without a 32-bit *system* libc. Just bundle it and link it statically like
firefox does with it's deps. grub-static probably makes more sense (that's
a binary package right?). I just meant that this is not a sign that the
package it's broken upstream as the comment implied.
