The status of the blitter routines is as follows:

1) The line blit is working wonderfully!

2) X-type area blitting cannot be directly handled by the Amiga blitter.  
Most blits will need to be devided up.  The base blit routines are 
working, however.

3) The original version of my blit code was synchronous.  I am in the 
process of adding async queueing.  This code will also split up complex 
blits into smaller chunks that the CC blitter can handle.

4) I have not even begun to contemplate area fills and off screen pixmaps

gcc does support 64-bit long longs, and has for a while.  This should not 
be of great concern unless you are trying to switch between 32 and 64 bit 

Since CGD wrote that there will be yet another major change in the very 
near future, I have put off working on a set of 64-bit X libs and/or X 
server.  I am anxiously awaiting a 64-bit binary distribution (poke poke).
