IMHO, just using the 64 bit kernel for AMD64/x86x64 is just fine.
Only a few apps are worth compiling for 64 bit, just the kernel since
most apps don't really take advantage of it and in some cases then
aren't as widely supported and used as the 32 bit ones. The big thing
about 64 bit kernels is the native support for larger memory spaces
(instead of the ugly hacks on 32 bit OSes).
This also applies to any apps that would use more than 4 GB of memory
