It's possible that wmiirc has some issues with FreeBSD's shell.
My FreeBSD box is down right now, so I can't test it. I wouldn't
expect problems, though. I run it under dash (derived from
FreeBSD's shell), and with one-true-awk from the FreeBSD tree.

plan9port runs fine on amd64. I've been running it as such for
quite some time now. I'm pretty sure that Russ runs x86_64, too,
so I would expect it to work rather well there.
