Unfortunately, we don't support 64-bit userspace on PA/Linux yet.

No.  PA-RISC 2.0 introduced some new instructions, but does not have to be
64-bit.  64-bit can be useful, but it can also slow down applications.  So
it's a tradeoff.

We don't build binaries for HP-UX.  Some people have suggested starting a
new port to build binaries for proprietary unices sch as Solaris and HP-UX,
but nobody has actually done so yet.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
