Yep it's 64 bits...

I'm afraid -m32 gets me into 32-bit-library hell since I can't seem to get a
32-bit version of libgdbm that he likes.

I took a look at those header files - um, it's safe to say they're very,
very different. I'm not a C-guru (not anymore, doing java for a living these
days) - is there anything particular that I could look out for to make
things work with 64bit?
