There is no special support for AMD64, and I don't know
whether it is needed? Anyway, there is the file stackless.h
which tries to find a known #define from a supported platform,
and if this is not there, it undefines STACKLESS and compiles
as standard Python, like in your case.

How is Python compiled on AMD64, with 64 bit support?
Then we *might* have to do some extra support for it.
This is not so hard to do, but I need to know what
the specifics of this platform are.

Can anybody help, please?
