Umh, a couple of things:
- current9x is 32 bit. 64 bit on x86 was introduced with Solaris 10.
- current9x does not have a direct internet connection, but needs a proxy as
  described in /etc/SETUP on 'login'
- We do compile on 64 bit where useful, however, this is to my knowledge not
  the case for Python right now.

You may want to chime in on maintainers@ for a 64 bit Python, though.

Best regards
