The process id in Linux is always 32bits, and unless you tweak
/proc/sys/kernel/pid-max the actual range used is even smaller.

It shouldn't be any different.  I have been running ppc64 kernels with
sarge for a long time.  And if there's a bug in procps somewhere where
it can't deal with some fields beeing bigger in 64bit kernels that
should be fixed in procps instead of needing another set of binaries.
