I was miles away from even finding the 64-bit port (or were you running
it on a multi-lib system?).

Yeah.  After I made the mistake of signing up for 1yr of Skype Call Out
(or whatever it's called), I found OpenWengo.  When my 1yr expires, I'll
be testing it out--even though it has no "all you can use" package.  (As
much as I've used it, the pay-per-use would have been cheaper, anyway.)
