No real 64 bit port has been done that I know of. I did an
experimental port 5 years ago of pre-OTP Erlang to Digital Alpha and
Digital Unix/OSF1. But this was not a true 64 bit port, it used 32 bit
pointers on a 64 bit machine.

I definitely think it is time for a real 64 bit port now when both
Intel and AMD move to 64 bits,
