Some update on the 64bit port:

- The debian-ports archive now has enough packages to bootstrap a
- A 64bit debian buildd is getting set up, not much work is left there.
- The hurd-amd64 wanna-build infrastructure is to be set up in the
coming days.


Building packages is not very stable. I have been trying to build
gcc-13 for a couple of weeks, without success so far. There are various
failures, most often odd errors in the libtool script, which are a sign
that the system itself is not behaving correctly. A way to reproduce
the issue is to just repeatedly build a package that is using libtool,
sooner or later that will fail very oddly.

This means that while the buildd will be ready, I'm really not at ease
with letting it start, knowing that it can behave erratically. When I
built the initial set of packages for debian-ports (~100 packages), I
got something like 5-10 such failures, that's quite high of a rate :/
