[Spread-users] trying to run spread on 64bit linux

I've built spread (4.0.0) on a 64bit linux box but it's failing to start. No errors in the log, 
nothing. I have it running fine on other 32bit boxes in the same cluster, but not the 64bit ones. 
Here's what I get from Spread:

[user at box user]$ spread

[user at box user]$

That's it, no warnings, no errors and nothing in the log. Just to make sure it's linking against the 
right libs, etc
[user at box user]$ ldd `which spread`
	linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fff66bfd000)
	libm.so.6 => /lib64/libm.so.6 (0x0000003813200000)
	libnsl.so.1 => /lib64/libnsl.so.1 (0x0000003814e00000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x0000003812a00000)
	/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x0000003812600000)

Any ideas?
