Hi sdcc users and developers,

if you carefully looked to the SDCC Snapshot Build web page, you might noticed two new items: "Windows 64bit (experimental) (x86_64-w64-mingw32)" and "Windows 64bit package with installer (experimental) (x86_64-w64-mingw32-setup)".

Both contains the native 64 bit Windows compiled sdcc suite. The builds are done on Erik's cf-x86 amd64 Fedora 12 Linux machine, cross-compiled in mingw_w64 environment (libraries, header files, ...) with x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc (GCC) 4.5.4 (prerelease). Regression test are ran on the same machine with wine64 and they all pass.

The zip packages sdcc-snapshot-x86_64-w64-mingw32-yyyymmdd-bbbb.zip are quite complete. The only remaining TODO is compilation of 64 bit readline5.dll and it's inclusion.

The setup package still needs some work:
Any reports of successful or unsuccessful installation & execution are welcome!

Thanks to Erik Petrich to upgrade cf-x86 to Fedora 12 (glibc 2.11 is required by brebuild mingw_w64)  and to gcc, mingw_w64 and wine teams to make this possible.
