I have some time available today and tomorrow. At least we could get
started on the 64-bit OpenGL library.
Re. VirtualBox: It's also available (for free) for Linux hosts, here:
If you're interested, you might be able to run 64-bit Ubuntu on your
32-bit Linux machine. Or am I wrong? At least, it works quite well on my
Macs, one of them has only 1 GB RAM.

Yeah, this is one of the major open issues on 64-bits.
Unfortunately, the 32-bit OpenGL library doesn't work on 64-bits, we
have to rewrite it using 'native' calls. I couldn't do it until now, as
I have no local 64-bit machine (only accessed remotely via ssh) and thus
no way to test the graphics.
Let's do it together? If you have a test setup (I'm assuming so ;) then
I can give you input about the basic structure.
