Not running it, but starting with 2006.0, EM64T is officially supported by the amd64 architecture project. From the project page: "The AMD line of 64-bit extended processors were released well ahead of Intel's offering. Therefore, for historical reasons the arch keyword for all x86-64 compatible architectures is amd64." Sebastian Redl -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
