Actually automation achieved in building 6.0 can easily lead us to 
include 64bit builds. All deb packages from official repositories 
support this already. Java and Python projects are almost independent of 
arch. I wonder if non packaged applications support 64bit builds (like 
liblas, rasdaman etc).

I would not be surprised if we could already build a 64bit version 
successfully without changes...
