Yes

Just make sure the host is compliant

If unsure post output of script here,
I have just completed lfs 7.2 using that host

1 step behind again

If your hardware supports 64 bit I would choose to use that, otherwise use a 32 bit version. It doesn't matter when building LFS, both are taken into account when building.
