I have just stuck the disks from an old AMD Athlon(tm) (1333.39-MHz 686-class CPU) into a new box with an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ (2387.78-MHz 686-class CPU). I am still building a daily kernel with the old configuration and all is well. Of course the old configuration was/is i386. Now I need to compile for 64 bit apps. I have configured a slightly modified sys/amd64/conf/GENERIC kernel and was going to build it as a test only to find out that a simple make buildkernel KERNCONF=AMD doesn't find /sys/amd64/conf/AMD. There is an old reference in UPDATING from 5.0 that didn't work either.

The other question is on today's make world all seems to still be compiled ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386 so I am sure missing something very simple.

I'm actually going to update serveral machines, both Current and RELENG. All of which are up to date. Hopefully there will be no major problems. I also plan to recompile all ports once I am able to build and install an AMD64 world and kernel. Right now all is working fine with todays, sources and kernel except they are compiled for Intel.

Any other suggestions appreciated. Maybe someone might recommend upgrading the RELENG boxes to CURRENT first?
