If 32 bit is a problem, gentoo has a 64 bit distribution. You also can build a 64 bit from yocto.
FYI, according to Jim, there is a 64-bit version of Raspbian, however one of my co-workers has mentioned that the Pi foundation doesn't recommend running 64-bit on the Pis, due to memory starvation and the fact that you'll quickly run into OOM problems. From what I've been told, running 64-bit on anything with less than 4GB of RAM isn't advised.
