Thanks, but you have assumed I hvae a far greater knowledge of 
Linux than I do. I used apt-get once from the command line, 
following detailed instructions from someone on the net. I don't 
know what apt-build and apt-src are. I have never compiled 
anything. I also don't know what "source" means.

I guess I'll just wait until there is a 64-bit .deb file in a repository 
where Synaptic can find it. Someone with my limited knowledge of 
Linux should probably not be using stuff that is beta software
