Building 64bit LFS

Hi, I have built LFS before quite a few times since LFS 4.1.

Checking the main website LFS has only cross builds from native host systems, i.e. 32bit x86, this method of building LFS requires using a cross compiler, and breaks the Bootloaders.

I am going to try and build a System on a 64bit Laptop, does anyone know if bootloaders should work correctly when built from within an x86_64 host, to a x86_64 LFS.

(I assume that they would work as the problem probably lies on the use of "--host=****" tags)

I am assuming that all of the other core packages do but I would like to be able to boot into my System instead of 'chroot'ing into it.

(Sorry If this question has been answeared before but I have read many different things relating to LFS and none of them seem to say either way)
