[aquaria] Mostly-working 64-bit patch

Regarding this, the compiler is not using any kind of optimization, and 
then you also added the flag "-g" for the compiler in your patch, which 
is to enable debug mode. Maybe this is the reason it's slower.
Try removing the "-g" flag and/or adding -O3, or maybe using GCC's strip 
after compiling.

This being said, using the CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE variable in the CMake script 
to select a common set of flags may be a good idea. It uses the None 
value by default if you don't set anything, either in the script or by a 
command line parameter.
The value Debug adds "-g", Release adds "-O3 -DNDEBUG", RelWithDebInfo 
adds "-O2 -g" and MinSizeRel adds "-Os -DNDEBUG".

   set(CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE Release CACHE STRING "None Debug Release 
RelWithDebInfo MinSizeRel" FORCE)

That would create an optimized binary, but maybe we would rather to use 
RelWithDebInfo by default, and let people change that if they don't want 
debug symbols.

Nonetheless, even if we don't add the "build type" feature, I think it 
would be a really good idea to at least add the -O2 or -O3 flag to the 
script. Those are really necessary to get an optimized binary.
