Yes, I understand that in 64bit Linux you would be able to compile for
the 64bit platform....
But our development machines are mostly (95%) Windows 32bit systems
and I had in mind to use VirtualPC in order to have the developers
running Linux on their own Windows machines for compiles etc.
Then we would use a single hardware Linux machine for actual testing.

Unfortunately VirtualPC2007 does not support loading anything else
than 32 bit operating systems into a virtual machine, so we are left
with that. We use VPC2007 a lot for testing purposes, so we are
comfortable with that system except for the 64bit support (or lack
