[driverloader] amd64: dldrconfig fails with "This is for 32-bit

I'm trying to get driverloader working on my eMachines m6805 laptop
(which has an AMD64 3000+ CPU and a Broadcom wireless chipset). I'm
running kernel 2.6.2 basically configured the same as this:
...but that's likely not terribly relevant as I can't get past the
dldrconfig stage. When I run it, the make in
/usr/lib/driverloader/modules fails with the message "This is for 32-bit
targets only" in GPL/divdi3.c.
As I'm running a 64-bit processor, I'd imagine "64-bit multiplication
and division" would be fairly trivial, but I haven't quite been able to
locate where this code should be. Is there an obvious fix for this?
I've looked for analagous amd64-specific code in the kernel and glibc,
but haven't found anything.
Just for kicks, I also tried simply commenting the #error statement in
this .c files, but then make failed with a linker error:
ld: Relocatable linking with relocations from el32-i386
(modules/imported/driverloader-i386.O) to format elf64-x86_64
(modules/driverloader.o) is not supported
which suggests to me that I stand little chance of getting this working
unless I can get an amd64 version of the above .O file.
(I've also played around a bit with getting 32-bit emulation to run
this, as described at
but I haven't yet had much success with driverloader or any other packages.)
Any assistance would be appreciated.
