  How many space is needed for all amd64 packages ? If i can make some
  space for amd64 how we can manage that ?

I plan on creating a local mirror of amd64 if I can figure out how to
setup an autobuilder. Perhaps if the amd64 packages don't require too much
space Christian might find room.

find it, but could look into repackaging it from files. (I think there's a
package that can do this.) Otherwise I'll try a new build.
