I did not build the x86_64 package of texlive-bin, but I still find this very strange, because nobody has reported this before! I'll look into it, but first I need more info: are you sure the i686 binaries you found come from the texlive-bin-*-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz package?

The package name is just texlive-bin-2007.2-2.pkg.tar.gz I got the same package from two different x86_64 mirrors.

I now have a x86_64 machine. I'll build the binaries as soon as I can.

Building with gcc 4.3 fails. I'll downgrade to 4.2.3 and try again tonight.
