I do this all the time. I run the 64 bit kernel on a 32 bit userland
and have chroots to build for both architectures. It takes a bit of
hacking to mkarchroot and makechrootpkg though. I haven't
The reason it fails there is it makechrootpkg needs a scattering of
linux32's throughout. Also, you will want it to source
/etc/makepkg32.conf (or something...) instead of /etc/makepkg.
I posted the hacked scripts I use at
http://allanmcrae.com/scripts/dbscripts.tar.gz . Note that mkarchroot
builds for i686 and mkarchroot64 builds for x86_64 but as my pacman is
i686, I source a different makepkg.conf file on x86_64. Diff the files
with similar names against each other to see what I have done...
You still need to manually adjust pacman.conf when generating the chroot
with mkarchroot, but from then on updating is fine.
One day I will patch the devtools to make this easier...
