Hmmm, someone decided to rename the standard name x86_64 to a strange 
"i386_64"? This is unfortunate and imho wrong decision because the name 
x86_64 is standard and is used in many contexts (e.g. as arch part of an 
rpm filename, as a subdirectory in Linux kernel source tree, in uname -a 
output etc etc). (I can imagine only those who particularly hate Intel for 
taking AMD_64 and calling it x86_64 without any reference to AMD would 
object to the name x86_64.)

Anyway, I'll build it of course. I'll download the sources and do it, but 
not right now. If it's OK to wait 2 more weeks that would be great (I need 
to finish something urgent by the end of next week).

Kind regards,
