Currently, this machine is *not* suitable for amd64 port development,
since the 64bit chroots do not have glibc-dev installed.
Short story: to have security support, the box run woody/i386.
The box run a 2.4 kernel since woody does not work well with linux 2.6.x.
On the other hand, the amd64 glibc package require a 2.6 kernel.
So we are stuck until either 1) amd64 glibc package is safe to run with
a 2.4 kernel or 2) sarge/i386 is supported by security team.
Imagine a large red swirl here.
