I am a happy user of CMUCL on Linux 2.4.21, 2.6.7, 2,6.20 [all 64-bit],
and FreeBSD 4.6 [32-bit], 4.10 [32-bit], and 6.2 [64-bit]. CMUCL itself
is only a 32-bit binary on those platforms at the moment[1], but it runs
just fine on the above 64-bit platforms.


[1] Though I'm told some work is being done to get it to run "native" 64-bit.
