What makes you thnk there could be issues?

FLAC has been used reliably on 64 bit Linux systems for years. There
is no problem moving FLAC files from 32 bit to 64 bit machines or
moving them the other way. Nor is their any problem moving FLAC
files between big endian and little endian machines.

If you of a problem, please let us know, but don't assume there
is a problem unless you have actually seen one.
