[Beowulf] 64bit comparisons

I believe you can get more info from the following
mailing lists:

"hpc", "scitech", "xgrid-users"

see: http://lists.apple.com/mailman/listinfo

Also, people on those lists (if I remember correctly)
use LAM-MPI, GridEngine, and also the IBM xlc/xlf
compilers (XL compilers generate faster code for the
G5).

Andrew.
