Don't get me wrong, I've been able to build 64-bit versions of NAMD and 
various other codes on SLES9 on PPC64 successfully, but I am suprised that 
it's not fully native 64-bit.  I certainly was under the impression it was.

Especially as their docs say:

SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 is available for 64-bit IBM POWER
series hardware. The IBM POWER 64-bit architecture is used in
systems from Apple and IBM. It supports execution of code built for
the 32-bit edition of the POWER platform. POWER systems include
IBM iSeries and pSeries servers.

I presume SLES9 on AMD64 is a true 64-bit userland ?
