Installing IcedTea on a 64-bit CLFS system

Hi all,
I'm on a pure64 CLFS system, and I wish to install IcedTea. There seems to be a circular dependency involving Ant, and BLFS does provide a way to overcome this, but the required binary for the purpose is 32-bit. I couldn't find an appropriate binary for this purpose (Where does BLFS source it's .bin from?). Has anyone successfully installed IcedTea on a 64-bit C/B/LFS system? All suggestions are welcome.

Success, finally! Installed both IcedTea and OpenJDK, in the process created a diabolical build-script, with ugly hacks. But everything works fine. Only regret is the huge disk space the darned things are eating up
