As far as I know there is a minimal bootstrap seed which is 32 bits,

bootstrap is cross-compiled to x86_64. The problem is that for the

that make sense?

Yep sure that matches my take on it.  I'm willing to help if anyone has any ideas.

Last week I tried editing bootstrap.scm to add and use a 64-bit section with my own files and checksums via my own server, but I couldn't get it to work so I just gave up.  It downloaded them ok but the checksum failed - despite them being correct as far as i could tell.  I didn't make static binaries though so maybe that's related.  It took so long to try out each iteration I also lost interest.
