No more AMD64 in Bochs


Due to code inmaturity in Bochs' implementation of AMD64 CPU emulation, I've
been forced to disable that functionality in the Debian package of Bochs.

Sorry for the inconvenience. You can easily re-enable it by adding
--enable-x86-64 in debian/rules. If you want it back as default option,
someone will have to fix the segfaults that happen in guest IA32 apps
when AMD64 support is enabled. See bug #242793 for details.

gives and hoards not, and is free from care, passing ever on to some new work."
