I went to this page
and it says that LFS instructions are currently for building a 32-bit
system only. Instructions for building 64-bit systems will only come
in a future version of LFS.

I remembered I encountered some difficulties when building a 32-bit
Xen system. PAE support must be enabled. This was mentioned by Pasi.
