Hmm, I'm running current CVS gretl on 64-bit fedora 16 and I'm 
not seeing any problems.

When I started using gretl on a 64-bit system I noticed one 
"64/32" bug: the mechanism for importing data from a RATS 
database was broken due to use of the "long int" type where a 
32-bit integer was wanted. But that was fixed in the gretl 
1.9.8 release and I'm not aware of any other word-size issues.
