can not start xterm on -current

$ ls -l /usr/bin/xterm
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 468504 2012-05-04 23.17.25 /usr/bin/xterm

$ /usr/bin/xterm
/usr/bin/xterm: /usr/bin/xterm: cannot execute binary file

$ file /usr/bin/xterm
/usr/bin/xterm: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

$ ldd /usr/bin/xterm
not a dynamic executable

What kind of sorcery is this?

Doesn't match the filesize and date from my 64-current install. Have you updated to the latest current (RC3)?

Also, could you have accidentally installed 64 bit packages on a 32bit system?

Yep, that was the case, the x86_64 xterm package slipped through. I feel lame... Sorry for the noise.
