There have been discussions on the gentoo mailing list why this is not a
very good idea. The novel of procedures you wrote would have been a little
more appropriate there (since it’s got nothing to do with KDE).

Are you sure the netbook isn’t already 64 bit capable? I have one here with
an Atom N450 and did some comparisons between 32 and 64 bit when I got it
fresh. Performance increase was from 10% minimum to 50% and more for special
cases (like lilypond compiling music scores into PDF). In the end, I set up
a 64 bit kernel to make use of 64 bit registers, but stayed with 32 bit
userland to make better use of the tiny CPU caches. An as all my machines
do, it has a LUKSed home partition.

To be fair, this was not KDE-specific either, but hey, I’m compiling KDE on
that thing, which -- for a full upgrade -- takes around 16 to 20 hours.
Unfortunately, it eats LVDS cables, so I can’t use it on the move anymore. :-(
