The short answer is "I don't know.", but what distro are you using?  A 
64-bit system can run either the 32-bit or 64-bit OS.

I built a complete 'pure' (not multi-lib) 64-bit version of Linux From 
Scratch from ubuntu-9.04-server-amd64.iso without any problems at all.
No special switches required.

If you are doing a cross-compile from a 32-bit system to a 64-bit 
system, specialized switches would be needed.

I'd just try it and see if it works.
