I'm on my windows box, so not able to post details

During the -e system build, glib c fails and the last thing the log shows is chost x86 was the cause.

I started with the nomultilib tarball and suspect this is the cause or is the current toolchain giving lots of problems lately?

To build multilib, you must have first installed with multilib. Based on the very limited information you provided, you are attempting to build a multilib glibc from a no-multilib environment. This is not supported. Switch to a no-multilib profile or reinstall with a multilib environment.

That was what I suspected was the problem.

You can go from multilib to nomultilib but you can't go from nomultilib to multilib.

As to why things work this way, I haven't a clue - anyone have a clue stick/bat/truck/bus - since from my understanding, the only thing that is really needed is the compatibility (32bit emulation)

You also need a multilib gcc and supporting multilib glibc in order to build x86 glibc using the standard glibc build process. Otherwise you cannot create the x86 output files.
