Comment:

 Replying to [comment:3 rgommers]:
 > Do you have a problem using the 'intelem' compiler? It matches your
 current version string fine and should just work. If not, we can consider
 adding the below {{{v64match}}}}. It's shouldn't break anything, while
 your version could break on 32-bit.

 Compiler for EM64T-based apps' is quite old-fashioned. I had to look up
 EM64T to see it's just plain 64 bit.

 Sorry for the long delay. I can't check since I switched back to Linux...
 But using intelem would be fine, as long as the description would be
 updated. EM64T is really outmoded perhaps could be replaced by more
 commonly used terms, such as "x86_64", "amd64" or "Intel 64". I'd prefer
 the first, since that's widely used and vendor neutral. The second is used
 by Linux and GCC, but I find it to be misleading. The same goes for "Intel
 64".
