Re: [platform-swt-dev] 64-bit XULRunner

1.  XULRunner should be fine.

5. --disable-optimize ensures that the symbols in the compiled XULRunner are exported for clients like swt to link to.  It's quite possible that the builder assumed this value if --enable-application=xulrunner was specified, since xulrunners should always be linkable.  The important thing is to ensure that it is in fact xulrunner that has been compiled (various different apps can be built from their same source tree), and that --enable-optimize is not specified.

As a side note, mozilla has been building 64-bit xulrunners on a nightly basis for the last couple of versions, see http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner/nightly/latest-mozilla-1.9.1/ and ...-1.9.2.  I think these don't show up with their final releases because they're "unsupported", but are built nightly for sanity purposes, since the linux distros ultimately will be building and supporting them in 64-bit form.  As an experiment you could try http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner/nightly/latest-mozilla-1.9.1/xulrunner- since it is likely > 99% identical to their release (I know I advised against using "pre" releases in general, but this one should be fine).
