Will the tar ball work for Linux or must I stick with the X86 versions?

Patch 05 for the 1.6.0 stable AS tree fixes this problem once and for
all (I hope).  A new snapshot of the stable code (1.6.6) is
forthcoming, so if you get that it should all work fine. :)  WavePoet
says the best thing to do is wait for his new snapshot and get the
entire fixed tarball at once.
