It's probably safe (I updated it on my system, or maybe only on the
chroot).  If you have gNS or another system still installed, it
shouldn't cause problems.

If you have /lib32 or /usr/lib32 symlinked to the non-32 directories,
pacman won't know this and will consider the update to replace files not
owned by other packages.  Running pacman -S --force glibc did not break
my system, the other packages affected probably are less necessary.

The /lib32 symlink is still needed, many programs specify /lib32/ld.so.1
as their linked.  Some packages put their libraries in /lib32 or
/usr/lib32, they will also be rebuilt.
