I have finally managed to install one 64 bit driver with rpcclient
command on samba 3.0.21-rc1

I put the files to /var/lib/samba/printers/x64
and installed them with
rpcclient  -U Admin -c 'adddriver "Windows x64"

rpcclient -U Admin -c 'enumdrivers 3' localhost
shows the driver

[Windows x64]
Printer Driver Info 3:
        Version: [3]
        Driver Name: [PDFprinter]
        Architecture: [Windows x64]
        Driver Path: [\\\\LOCALHOST\print$\x64\3\pscript5.dll]
        Datafile: [\\\\LOCALHOST\print$\x64\3\PDFprinter.ppd]
        Configfile: [\\\\LOCALHOST\print$\x64\3\ps5ui.dll]
        Helpfile: [\\\\LOCALHOST\print$\x64\3\pscript.hlp]

        Dependentfiles: [\\\\LOCALHOST\print$\x64\3\pscript.ntf]

        Monitorname: []
        Defaultdatatype: [RAW]

 rpcclient -U Admin -c 'setdriver PDFprinter PDFprinter' localhost

works fine to.

But it I want to install a second printer, or this one again, entering
the same command I get:

 rpcclient  -U Admin -c 'adddriver "Windows x64"

I am able to remove the printer with
rpcclient -U Admin -c 'deldriverex PDFprinter "Windows x64"' localhost

and the installation works fine again.

But I am unable to install more then one printers.

If you need some debug information or the 64 bit ps driver files in
order to test it, let me know.
