amd64 = x86_64.  A lot of folks (and programs) call it amd64 since AMD 
created the 64bit extensions to x86 and shipped 'em first.  Intel only 
followed suit when a) they saw AMD selling scads of x86_64 processors and 
chipping away at their market share and b) Itanic^Hum wasn't selling the 
way they wanted it to.
