Things are coming along nicely. Just waiting for the official 2.3
release before crux64 2.3 is released. However, before anything is
release I would like to formalise the multiarch process.

For now I have a large number of ports ready for amd64 aswell as
compat32 stuff. I don't really have a progress report as such. I will
endevour to get something online at some stage however things are a bit
crazy here at the moment.
