* You have the "hearse" program installed. Hearse is a tool for sharing
'bones' files for the nethack game (a dungeon crawler. When you die,
sometimes a bones file is created. Later on, when you play that level
again you may find your corpse which can be looted for goodies).
Hearse makes your bones files available for other users and provides
other user's bones files available to you. In other words, it adds a
bit of spice to playing the game.
* You are running a 64-bit system. Both nethack and hearse run
perfectly well on 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, but at the moment
the popularity of nethack on 64-bit is low so the developer of hearse
has made the decision not to support 64-bit bones files. As and when
the intermediary website supports 64-bit bones files, the message
above will go away.
Hope that's informative.
