that isnt what the page says. it does say for glibc to do:
CC="x32-gcc -mx32 " CXX="x32-g++ -mx32 " CFLAGS="-O2 -g" ../configure

but it doesnt say what to do for binutils or gcc itself. obviously you cant
use the -mx32 flag when building the cross gcc for the first time since the
current native gcc wont support it.

the invocation given for glibc implies that the proposed tuple is x32-linux-
gnu, but the GNU config project doesnt support that tuple and i didnt see
mention of it in the binutils or gcc sources.

so we get back to my original e-mail:
are you getting a unique host tuple for this ? or are you extending
x86_64-linux-gnu ? so the only way of knowing which ABI is to check for
the output of the compiler+compiler flags ?
