Yes, I understand.  I was referring to the 64-bit versions of my
32-bit packages.  It took quite some period of discovery to determine
my operational needs and the packages required. I'm hoping to avoid
that re-experiencing that.

You shouldn't have allot of trouble matching the 64-bit version of any
package with the 32-bit version.  Assuming there is a 64-bit version of
the package you want, package names are typically very similar between
the two architectures.
