You leave me quite 'impressed' in the desillusional way haha but it's
ok, but try to understand my point of view for a moment...

I have a 64bit capable machine so I would like to have a 64bit system,
the previous time I built my 64bit system, used grub-0.97 because I
actually had a 32bit installation in another partition, so it did the
trick for me, but if I'm going for the *absolute* way I can't have a
32bit bootloader but a 64bit one, that's the reason I want to compile
grub2 for 64bit mode and you have to take into account my toolchain is
non-multilib (at least that's what suggests the installation method), so
I cannot produce any kind of 32bit code, but from the console output is
like I *almost* managed to get it done, just this stubs-32.h
non-existent reference blew my attempt...

And in the installation instructions I posted... they belong to the CLFS
Trac, and if the author (Joe Ciccone) stands grub2 can be compiled with
the given options, at least we can confirm that grub2 actually
*compiles* in pure 64bit mode, but not cvs grub2, that's what I asked
what could I do with this error, just that... :(

Isn't really any solution to this?
