64 bit should work, and there were some bugs fixed for this recently, so
I would recommend going with CVS head rather than 1.3.0.  32 bit is
clearly going to be more widely used and tested, so up to you whether to
go for a 32 bit linux host instead.  I'd prefer you to work on 64 bit so
we get more coverage there and so more bugs fixed, but that's perhaps
not the best answer for you!
