FreeBSD 4 won't run in 64-bit mode. You'll have to run FreeBSD 5 or

I would. Performance is likely to be better (especially with the
soon-to-come thread library improvements). It's more work, though.
Beware that -CURRENT snapshots between 2005/02/16 and 2005/02/24 will
be very unstable due to a VM bug which was fixed yesterday. A
snapshot built from today's sources should be fine.
