Thanks for the info. That was pretty much what I thought.

Is it that uncommon? I was aware they were incompatible between 
frontends, so I was going to have two for each (32 and 64) and 
label which frontend/compiler version they were built with. I 
figure that will cover most people if they don't want to bother 
building them, but I'll also make it easy for those that 
need/want to build them.
