Hi folks!

Ok, so I was stupid enough to pick Debian Etch 64 bit when configuring
my last server. I knew it would bite me :) and here I am confused about
where to find a 64 bit VM to compile.

AFAIK lots of small patches have been flying around lately, but where
can I find a tar ball that has most of those? David, could you perhaps
create one?

Right now I use the binary i386 VM from ftp.squeak.org/debian, it seems
to work but looks slowish to me (tinyBenchmarks):

295 million bytecods/sec
9.5 million sends/sec

And regardless of that it seems reasonable to at least use a 64 bit VM.

regards, Göran
