Got 1.7 to build properly on 64 bit from 1.6 without much tweaking -
basically the 'defs.make' needs to understand x86_64 as well
as amd64 - so for the impatient - follow the previous 1.4,1.5,1.6
bootstrap instructions +
<hack in x86_64 block to bsd defs make by copying the amd64 one>
bmake install package
should yield a 1.7 install & package.
Am currently doing a sanity rebuild to make sure I've recorded all
of the changes, then will try a native 1.7 -> 1.7 hosted build -
If all is well there, will be working to get the patches / boostrap
tarballs in after that.
