This did indeed create a 64-bit executable.

Alas, I won the battle but may still lose the war.  Red Hat did not 
include many PPC64 versions of their development libraries 
(libxml2-devel for example) that I need to install things like 
AnnBuilder.  It looks like RHEL 5 has these available, so I'll need to 
upgrade this partition and see if I can get this working.

Again, thanks for the help!
