I installed it just last week, and managed to get most things to work grace to
the 2.6.9-9 Debian kernel. The port is a Sid port, so you get the latest and
the greatest but it can be a pain to set up at the beginning. There are a
couple of broken packages in the true64 archive that are a pain: sed and
base-config. But you can get around that.
Openoffice won't work in 64bit, so you gotta install a 386 system in a chroot
and run it inside that.
