Yep. I found that, because it was heavily described. There were quite a
number of bugs with 64bit code. This are the same problems I have with nhc
or hugs (sizeof (void*) != sizeof int). Hugs simply crashes while nhc does
not compile (yet).

Thank you. I do not have Linux, so a Debian packet does not help that much.
