Thanks for the info... I guess that for geng on small graphs, there  
is no speed-up due to the 64-bit word length, so probably most of  
this speedup can be attributed just to the increased clock speed, and  
probably better peripherals..

I wonder if there is a more significant speed-up on bigger graphs,  
where the 64-bit word length would mean fewer operations need be done..
