Thanks a lot Simon!

If I only want to work in 64bit, do you foresee any problems if I also  
remove the i386* support? I've been doing that for a while and it  
seems to cause no problems (I usually refresh (curl) R from your site  
in the morning and in that script I added the ppc* and i386* removal  
lines after the curl).
