Again, things are in flux here.  You folks may have to look at time 
stamps to see where my brain is at any given point.

It sounds like I need to go multilib for now and when everything gets 
sorted out for pure 64 bit, then switch to pure 64.  I say this because 
I can switch from mulitlib to no-multilib without reinstalling.  The 
reverse is not the case and requires a re-install.  Correct?

I'm glad I came on here and asked questions now.  O_O

P. S.  I got more replies to read.  Watch me change my mind again.  lol
