Well, the indexes should be portable between them, but it would not
surprise me if there were differences in the two compilers so that the
indexes get written differently -- not a lot of testing was done on
64bit platforms.  The "portability" of the swish indexes is just that
items are written in network order.  But, swish still uses the native
sizes on the platform in use.

Nobody confuses Swish with Google.  I think Google would be the
easiest approach.
