64 bit support was available for 2.1.x in form of patches, and I had
also given my best to use FHS across nx/freenx. Would you like to
check out http://atrpms.net/name/nx/ and
http://atrpms.net/name/freenx/ (contains support for CentOS-4 and 5)
and take over/sync any valuable stuff?

BTW I've been trying to split the src.rpm into one src.rpm per tarball
(makes upgrading to minor NX releases easier, as well as using
self-made nxagent solutions). This isn't done, yet, but would you be
interested in hammering this package together to its bits?
