I've added "Intel 64" to that list, which is the name that Intel uses. 
Both AMD64 and x86_64 are names for the architecture though (unrelated 
to the processor brand), while "Intel 64" is Intel's own brand name for 
that architecture.

You don't have to. If you install the x86_64 version on top of it, it 
will become the new default. The i386 compiler will still be available 
via ppc386 and "fpc -Pi386".

The compiler works. The problem you got was caused by not having 32 bit 
versions of other development packages installed.
