i also noticed that the official ofelia externals use the "l_ia64"
extension for Linux/amd64.

i am *very* sure that this is the wrong extension.
"ia64" is the the short name of the "Itanium" architecture ([ia64]), an
architecture used mainly for servers. it is *incompatible* with the
x86_64 aka amd64 instruction set (which is the CPU that is built in
practically all PCs and Apple computers these days)
those processors are built by intel, which probably has caused the

there's [PR297] which tries to fix this by using arch-specific
extensions that actually match the canonical names for CPU architectures
(or at least wide-spread variants thereof).

i'd suggest to avoid this extension and instead use the generic "pd_linux".
