Note that Noah Yan has been working on an AMD64 port. Some stuff is 
already committed, and last time I checked, he had about 328KB of 
uncommitted patches in his git repository 

He doesn't seem to have much time at the moment but said he'll return to 
it as soon as the stuff he's occupied with has settled down a bit.
