Not AMD64, but SuSE SLES 9 for PPC64 on Power5 the system supplied GCC outputs
32-bit code by default, you *must* specify -m64 if you want 64 bit objects.

$ arch
ppc64
$ gcc hello.c -o t1
$ file t1
t1: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
