There's a lot of i386-specific code in the port. That stuff you see
failing there there is a JIT (or maybe AOT -- haven't looked) compiler
for the scripts for i386. You might be able to dike it out without
losing too much functionality (dropping back to interpreted) but I
haven't looked hard.
When I get some time I'll try to do an amd64 version, but my plate is at
its usual level of fullness.
