Perhaps you know something I do not. I did read the release
notes for several packages' differences between the versions used
in book 6.3 and 6.4, and I didn't notice any additional
architectures added. I saw defect repairs, and some security
hole closures.

Could you please point to a specific package version difference
between the 6.3 book and 6.4 book which shows an architecture
which got added? I'd be interested to see that.
