I'm running in 32bit mode with no problems.

gcc might do it (once you bootstrap it into 64 mode).  

It takes some doing to bootstrap it and I've come across a couple
of packages that blows up when I run the compiled code. Unfortunately,
I don't have innd on a 64bit system so I can't try that combination.

If you do try gcc, get 2.95.2. It is better at 64bit mode than
2.95.1 was.
