Do know when DragonFly would support 64-bit? Can DF easily be ported

made this step more trivial) or does it come down to a full rewrite of
DF for 64bit?
I believe that work on making the code support 64-bit has been done and
more is under way, however all parts are not done yet.
We have been supporting 64bit since always because FreeBSD-4 had an
alpha port. I think it boils down to have the MD pieces for amd64.
That's no walk in the park though.
