Ahh, ok. So you're just confirming what cyklonite mentioned. I didn't get that the first time around. To the specifics though, no it doesn't make sense to bundle a copy of glibc so that it can be built 32bit in order to support linking grub:0 to it; if anyone -really- wants to build grub:0 on a pure64 platform then they can use a 32bit crossdev to do it, just like they'd have to do to build anything else that's 32bit only on a pure64 install.
