You don't want that. There's nothing speedy about compiling 64-bit. It's
a waste unless your entire system needs to access > 4gigs of ram. If you
must convince yourself, you need to add -m64 to the command line and
make sure you use latest gcc-3.3 in unstable. Also, install into a
chroot initially so you don't break your running system.
