        * advertise 64bit support if activated

No claim that I did the work of course! It was the effort of multiple

GRASS GIS 5.0.0pre2 released 13 September 2001
"Platforms supported by GRASS:
Linux, Sun Solaris, Sun Solaris/Intel, Silicon Graphics Irix, HP-UX,
DEC-Alpha, PowerPC, MacOS X, AIX, BSD, CRAY and other UNIX compliant
platforms (32/64bit), experimentally Windows NT/2000 running Cygnus

... so that was way before 2006.
