Yes.  I think they can share the same source files with the 32-bit
formats, but provide extra format structs.

Yes, unless it turns out that the extra 4 bytes (after the explicit
magic string) actually differ between DragonFly versions on 64-bit.
You may need to make two or more 64-bit installs of DragonFly (different
versions - e.g., just after they introduced this SHA-2 stuff vs. latest).
