I'm going to try making all Linux compat ports AMD64 capible over the
next few weeks. Since we have Linux32 compat, this shouldn't be a
problem, and ports that don't work seem to be a special case, as
opposed to the general rule. How should I submit the diff for this,
and how should I report ports that don't work in this scenario?
