I imagine that you could compile an AMD64 kernel, and compile Postgresql
for AMD64. But you still might have a poor performer with a 32-bit jdk.  
You could put Postgresql on a separate AMD64 server and Tomcat on a 32-bit
X86 server, but that may or may not be what you want.

Compiling a kernel for a server is really quite easy, because you don't
need to worry about peripherials like FireWire, USB, etc.

My HowTo describes how to compile PostgreSQL 7.3.4, and it's probably the 
same for 7.4. But I am going to compile 7.4 soon and post the info on my 
web page.
