Yes, got that hint from Pierre. It works pretty fine with this switch.
Indeed, it seems to be a bit strange that 64bit code is generated on a
32bit system. Unfortunatly I'm not that deep in grub to see whether
that code will ever be executed (or at least tried to).
Would be cool if that switch could make it into the book as it wouldn't
no longer require the build scripts to be patched every time.
I'm just finishing building a new i686-system with thew new binutils,
glibc and such. Will see whether grub still works (but i assume it as
it allways did).

Thank you all!
