64-bit precompiled Linux binaries
Would it be possible to provide 64-bit precompiled Linux binaries on the SQLite site? I'm using SQLite in an environment where only 64-bit programs can run (no 32-bit glibc is installed) and I don't have root access, so I can't use the 32-bit builds nor can I install SQLite using the OS package manager.

You don't need root access to build and install it under your home directory. i do have root access on all of my machines but have never once used it to install fossil (which is installed on all of my machines): that's what
~/lib, etc. are for.
For sqlite, the process is something like:
$ tar xzf the-sqlite3-sources.tar.gz $ cd the-sqlite3-dir $ ./configure --prefix=$HOME $ make $ make install
That will install everything under directories in the "prefix", e.g. the binary will go under

Right... What I meant is that I can't install 32-bit glibc (to get the 32-bit builds running) or the 64-bit Debian/CentOS SQLite package.
You're right that I could compile it myself in my home directory, however since the site has 32-bit builds today, I thought it'd be useful to also include 64-bit builds on the site given a large majority of servers are moving towards 64-bit, rather than having to compile it myself.
