I see this with 'openssl speed rsa' when comparing the stock NetBSD
OpenSSL, and one using SIXTY_FOUR_BIT_LONG and bn/asm/x86_64-gcc.c.
Submitting a Configure patch to the OpenSSL folks and a NetBSD PR with
Makefile *.inc changes has been on my queue for some time, I'll try to
make it happen this evening.
