It does work.

I *have* looked into getting this fixed for x86_64. I have been part of
the freenx/nx project since 2004, and no one has successfully ran this
on x86_64. I'm told that nxagent is not 64-bit safe, and that fixing it
would require somewhat of a rewrite.

I also think that it's a little rash to determine that maintainers are
lazy because they have a package that does not work on all architectures.
