FR (from is distributed as source. There's no "64-bit
version of the experimental module" in the source. You can build it as
either 32 or 64bit.

If you use a binary package, you should ask its maintainer directly.

I don't see why not. As long as you also have the necessary 64bit
dependencies (e.g. 64bit ruby is needed to build 64bit FR + rlm_ruby)

There are lots of experimental module. Which one do you want? You
might be able to find prebuilt binaries already.

For example, if you use Ubuntu/debian, see
If you use RHEL/Centos/fedora, it should have rlm_wimax included in
official package even if it's officially marked as experimental.
