My experiences trying to fix NXwindows for AMD64 were quite similar. A better
solution would be to get the vendors to update their code to either a newer
XF86 or Xorg. I think both VNC and NX use XFree 4.3 or earlier which do not
support amd64 (though they seem to support ia64). It seems to me that Linux
users would have the same problems that we do.
