64-bit packaging details
As far as I can tell the questions in this thread were never resolved:
Are the packages going to be in an amd64 arch, with the main system
installed as i386 and amd64 packages allowed? And all 64-bit libs are
definitely going in /lib64?
Doesn't that seem kind of hokey for a pure 64-bit installation? On
Alpha (a 64-bit-only arch) you don't have /lib64, just /lib.
In either case, it seems like dpkg is the first order of business, if we
have to teach it that it can install amd64 as well as i386.
