Only knowledgable. Like people who know 

 Or you want to do more work before doing a more

the testsuite overview site here:


Still twice as many failures as the x86 one. Not all are big problems, but
some are, like:

(from tlib1a.pp):

/usr/bin/ld: ./units/x86_64-freebsd/prt0.o: relocation R_X86_64_32S can not
/be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
./units/x86_64-freebsd/prt0.o: could not read symbols: Bad value
tlib1a.pp(18) Error: Error while linking
tlib1a.pp(18) Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping
Fatal: Compilation aborted

Probably the variables I/Florian inserted into the startup code need pic
