Same thing over here. We want to do native 64bit software development
on an 64bit Athlon X2 with just the necessary 32bit stuff on it.

I've had a look at a Gentoo based Distro called RR64 (Sabayon) at
http://www.lxnaydesign.net/ (I do some beta testing there, too)
It's nice for a fancy desktop system with lots of bells'n'whistles,
but for a server there is just too much stuff someone won't need.

I think it's pretty important to get 64bit versions out, soon.
Can somebody tell what's missing to put out the latest CRUX in 64bit?
I can offer to spend some hours for low-level stuff (kernel/toolchain).
