After reading that post, I found hope in this portion:

	"Maybe it would be still possible to write an
	emulation layer, but easier is it to just use static 64bit
	executables or hacked 32bit executables."

Is there a way to make these 'hacked 32 bit executables' with compiler
options?  Should I just be working on my chroot run scripts? I've
decided the best way to run a production system is to start a
daemontools service manager in a chroot and have it manage
starting/stopping/logging on the 64 bit services.  Anyone tried this
