I did compile harmony on em64t. The most tricky part was to set up 
depends for classlib, I think I've written about it already. The 
distribution is quite old SuSE9 with gcc 3.3.3 and GNU binutils (which 
include ld) 20040303 (SuSE Linux).

I'm going to try to do this on my Gentoo at home now. It is mostly 
bleeding edge up to date installation.
