When there will be 64 bit support in TclTk, since there is a
configuration switch --enable-64bit, but it is disabled while running
the configure script with the error -Not supported on this platform?
We have tried on HP-UX 11.00 - 64bit, Compaq Tru64 UNIX 4.0d and Solaris
7 on UltraSPARC.
Tcl actually does suport some (most?) 64 bit environments. That flag
is just improperly named. It is used on Solaris7 to get the solaris
compiler to use the 64bit mode (it uses 32 by default). Other compilers
(like gcc 2.95) often automatically assume 64 bits in a 64 bit env.
We should rename it --enable-sol-64bit or be better about the warning.
