PET is compilable on 64 bit machines for quite a while already. I 
remember that somebody (i think it was Eric, not quite sure) said that 
results on 32 bit and 64 bit PET were different for some grammars.

Maybe the grammar writers could check this by comparing the results of 
their 32 bit test runs against the 64 bit PET version. If there are 
differences, we can sure pin them down (Peter already has gained some 
experience with this lately :-)
