I have the same setup and ran into the same problem. I posted a very
similiar message to yours on the amber reflector a few months ago. From
talking to others on the amber reflector at the time I found there was no
solution to this problem directly. You should be able to compile and run
all programs except for xleap on your box. I found that a static opteron
compiled version of xleap will work on an AMD 64 box without problems. If
you have further problems, drop me an email.
