I tried out the 64-bit version but ran into an error I didn't encounter 
in the last release.  I am running Ubuntu 11.04. After ./clean and 
./install I see:

    checking if ndiff is installed ...

    building const package.

    gfortran -fno-range-check  -fopenmp  -I../public -I../private
    -I../../include -Wunused-value -Werror -W -fimplicit-none   -O2 -c
    -ffixed-form -ffixed-line-length-132 ../public/const_def.f
    /opt/mesasdk/bin/gfortran.exec: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6:
    version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by
    make: *** [const_def.o] Error 1


    ./build_and_test FAILED

This looks reminiscent of a problem acknowledged in the MESA SDK FAQ for 
Red Hat, with the vague solution that " This problem should have been 

Any clue what's causing this and what I can do to get the install going
