This is still an open issue, yes.

Security support for amd64 sarge will be one of the main topics for the
amd64 porters irc meeting today. An autobuilder has been prepared
which will build amd64 security updates for sarge as soon as the sources 
become available. However, as far as I know, this has not yet been
officially coordinated with the security team and I do not know the 
position of the security team on this. But I am confident that a
solution can be found for this issue. The amd64 is certainly willing
to do the necessary work.

Besides security support, do you have any other concerns which should 
be addressed to make a sarge release for the amd64 architecture
