you could always try out the CVS version, though i don't have the 
slightest clue if it's stable at the moment and if IA-64 assembly inner 
loops actually work as I don't have an Itanium :) But there are 
directories and there is code in them, so you might want to give it a shot.


Ahh, i just wish I had one of those... but Santa crossed that one off my 
wishlist ;)

Happy New Year,
