Hello all!

I have an i386 small server that I whish to upgrade to amd64 (upgrading
the hardware too:) without destroying user files and configurations.
Is that possible? It might be interesting on some virtual machines too...
Maybe doing a rebuild of everything in /usr/src changing the architecture
is enough?
