Thanks for this!  I can use your 64-bit patch to build luajittex on
64-bit Cygwin.  Two questions:

1. Do you plan to send your patch upstream?  I had some correspondence
with the author last year in which he said he would welcome a patch to
make luajit build on 64-bit Cygwin.

Unfortunately, upstreaming takes time (particularly when dealing with
the many misconceptions people have about Cygwin) so I've admittedly
been lax in that regard.

I have to send the patch to upstream TeX Live anyway, so I could just copy the luajit author.

2. Why did you use the -fexceptions flag in your build?  The build
succeeds without that flag, and luajit still works AFAICT.  (But I don't
really know how to test it.)

I'm just taking their word for it:

In particular, see line 50-55, although perhaps that only applies to

I'm not sure; I find that discussion ambiguous. On the other hand, there's no mention of -fexceptions or -funwind-tables in the Makefiles, and src/Makefile explicitly says (line 150) that there's probably no need to change CFLAGS.
