[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.

Thanks for the patch, but I wonder, how this port ever worked for our
other 64 bit platforms -- Sparc64 and Alpha. Or is int a 64-bit on
those, but not on AMD64?

That being said, I was going to ask for retiring the graphics/hdf and
repo-copying graphics/hdf5 over it. You may wish to check, if that port
has the same problem on AMD64.
