... just doing a reverse search through the grass6 CVS changelog, the first
relevant CVS log message I see is:
2000-01-02 13:29 markus
* src/CMD/generic/is64bit.sh: Bill Hughes: automatically choosing
the diglib64 library at compile-time for 64-bit machines
As this is just 4 days after Markus first put the code into CVS, I think it
is safe to assume that there was earlier 64bit support than that.
Those changes would have been in GRASS 5 beta6 released 16 Feb 2000.
Presumably before that you had to tell it to compile for 64 bit manually.
