I don't know much about packaging but I guess the reason is that nobody prepared the 64 bit package "yet". So, I don't see a reason for GNU Smalltalk not to work
on 64 bit systems when you compile it.

Though, I don't think that converting all of your Ruby administration scripts into GST is a good idea. GST is not as stable as Ruby or does not have extra
libraries as much as Ruby has etc... Maybe you should first try some
experimental administration scripts and convert the rest if you are satisfied.

I tested them all on a 32 bit system a couple weeks back and had no issues
but, thanks for the advice.

Ah, actually I missed two... both of which need to interact with the filesystem permission, in particular dealing with file owner and group. I cant find anything to do that. Does it exist right now or should I start my real GNU Smalltalk learning by learning the C interface
and adding that functionality?
