You can't compile on amd64, since you still have to create the compiler (and
debug the actual problem).

So you need:

- a starting compiler (2.0.4 or 2.1.4)
- a 2.3.x (development) snapshot or svn checkout, which are afaik on FTP's
  server. Note that sourceforge only contains releases, not snapshots

Then you need to crosscompile (see http://www.stack.nl/~marcov/buildfaq.pdf
) to AMD64, and fix the problems in the end.

It is possible to create a binary for amd64, but that binary doesn't work,
and I don't know why. FreeBSD keeps complaining it can't execute it.
