I think the 64bit kernel+64toolchain will be enough (for the first start). If it works fine, then i will try to build some "multimedia" stuff --> no complete 64bit userlandi´m thinking of "porting" slackintosh to G5. Is anyone intresting in slackintosh-64bit?
Uh.. hm.. oh..
Do you mean 'full 64bit' (like slamd) or a Solaris-like approach (= 64 bit kernel, 64bit toolchain and maybe 64bit glibc but mostly 32bit userland)
The "old" 2.6.15? --> this one won´t work on a G5 with nvida card.
#2 could be integrated into slackintosh without much fuss: Having some 64bit packages inside eg. /extra + providing an 64bit kernel would be enough (FYI: The -current install-cd offers a (gentoo's) 64bit kernel)
I got one of my girlfriend (So no more presents on birthday, chrismas .... for years)
..but for #1 IMHO a 'fork' would be the best solution (Like slamd <-> slackware)
there already is some super-secret work in this direction in the -dev mailing list ;-)
Yeah.. $someone built a 64bit gcc on Slackintosh..
Currently neither of us (Marco + /me) is able to work on a 64bit port
because we don't have access to a G5 and eBay has no cheap hardware 
I don´t think this is a "real" offer! The one costs ca. 3500€!
the efforts on a wiki, or we could just put the noise down here :D
A wiki would be cool but wouldn't be easy to setup because workaround.ch doesn't run a normal httpd (no apache + co) ;-)

Looks good: ~300 Euro for an G5 .. but would you buy from an eBay member located in China with 0 'reviews' ? ;-)
