I suspect it will be okay, but I haven't tested it.  It partly depends on
which features will be used - the GUI is twitchier about system libraries on
Linux.  Fortunately, we also distribute all of the source code for Phenix,
so if the binary installer doesn't work, I'd recommend switching to the
source installer.  Are these the same machines (and OS) that were used for

Would it be possible to have 32-bit version built for f-12 or f-13?

Possibly - we are probably going to pull some machines from our queueing
system because they have only 8 cores, and some of these will become build
machines for additional platforms (64-bit Ubuntu and CentOS are candidates).
 Also, we now build a CentOS 5 (similar to FC6) installer - it didn't work
properly for 1.6.3, but I think I've fixed it now, and we're going to push
out a 1.6.4 very soon because of some unrelated problems in 1.6.3.
