ACE indeed is not an issue, since i already did a 64 bit compilation, working.
The real issue is dbxml, which can't be upgraded from the internal one and any 
small minor version change on the base db cause the most unusual crashes.

64 bits in linux is doable, but requires a little effort and i don't think 
would be possible for a mapguide release
