Oh, well, if you just wanted to know if it worked... :-)  It does work. 
  IIRC, you need to play with pyconfig.h a bit for a few 64-bit things, 
but it pretty much works out of the box.  It might be easier at this 
point to check out the pyconfig.h that's used for the Itanium build - I 
don't think that was available when I did the first AMD64 build here.
