[CC to the amd64 list because it's particular to that platform; CC to KDE 
because it's a dependency for their ports, which prevents the ports from 
building on amd64.]

The attached patch adds support for the amd64 platform by introducing a new 
machine definition. I hope I got it all right - in particular, the code 
assumes that a fortran int can be cast to a pointer, so I _must_ define the 
fortran int as long. I haven't checked if that is really the case, so while 
the port may build now, it might not actually work.

The patch also augments the totally bogus

#if some-error-condition
Regular english text explaining the error.

(which gets you grand error messages from gcc like "Syntax error near "you".") 
by the slightly less bogus

#if some-error-condition
#ifdef __GNUC__
#error English text
Regular english text

It doesn't do so across all the platforms, though, so it could use some 
augmentation itself.

The users that I support would double-click on a landmine to see what it did.
