If you build it from source, it should be ready to go, especially if  
you build it from trunk.  There isn't a 64-bit build machine, so  
that's why there aren't Pd-extended 64-bit releases.

I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during  
that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big
