Going 64-bit

Ever since Slackware announced 64-bit support in May 2009 and made it official with Slackware 13.0 in August 2009, I was not able to compile 64-bit packages in my SlackPack virtual machines, because of dummy processor choice.

Now this is about to change and I already have 64-bit virtual machines for all of the 13.* series. The machines are still being customized, but the first packages are about to appear soon. I'll try to produce 64-bit packages at the same time as 32-bit.

Do not miss them!
