Sorry, this may off topic. But I want just to inform, that there is 64-bit 
gcc (together with the binutils) support for window allready present until 
version 4.3. You can find a crt and headerset for the target 
x86_64-pc-mingw32 on in project mingw-w64. It is currently an alpha 
version. FX compiler its mingw cross compiler version using this crt.
