Why does it matter if it is 64-bit or not? Most programs at the moment don't benefit from being compiled 64-bit. I don't get the obsession with 64-bitness that most Linux and BSD people seem to have. I think workstation Unices like Solaris and IRIX get things right (only stuff that benefits from being 64-bit is 64-bit, the rest is 32-bit, so there is no need for separate 32- and 64-bit versions of the system, and fewer compatibility issues).Just to clarify: I'm referring to the QEMU binary itself, not the architecture it emulates.
