Exclamation Perfect SUSE 10.1 for 32 bit on a 64 bit Proftpd Setup

First of all great tutorial for a newbie like me trying to do server. I am currently trying to configure Suse 10.1 64 bit with ur 32 bit guide. Its been working fine until i get to the point where i need to make the proftpd package. I read some of the post at the end but it doesnt help at all and i have looked all over google. The post at the end of page 6 talked about the wrong version of "glibc-devel". I have even went as far as getting the rpms for em and that doesnt work either.
when i do the ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc i get these errors:

checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... gcc
Checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
see 'config.log' for more details.

so if u can please help me or atleast let me know if i should just use another distro for a 64bit server. Im almost thinking of switching to FreeBSD 6 amd64. Thank you and please keep up the good work.

Did you try this?

proftp configure error on 64-Bit Systems

On the 64-Bit System, the wrong version of the glibc-devel is installed. (i686 instead of x86_64)

Correct this in yast2 and it will work.

Open yast, go to the software installation tool and search for glibc. Uninstall the currently installed glibc-devel and install the glibc-devel for x86_64.

Run
Code:
yast
on the shell (as root), and then go to Software -> Software Management. There you should see a search button where you can search for the desired package.
