These are the wrong files. The regular VM compiles fine on 64 bits:


"squeak64" is the experimental 64 bit *image* support, which is  
incompatible with all the Squeak images:


Ian, can we change the squeak64 page again? The FAQ link is too subtle  

E.g. change title to "Squeak 64-bit image support (experimental)" and  
add a warning on the top a la "<b>WARNING</b> If you merely want to  
compile a Squeak VM for a 64 bit machine, you are on the <b>wrong</b>  
page! Please use the <a href="/unix">regular VM</a> instead, which was  
made 64 bit clean in the mean time. Try the FAQ ..."
