> Is there official win64 builds of any of our dependencies?

There are win64 builds of Gtk+: http://www.gtk.org/download/win64.php

Quite old, but not much more so than the win32 bundles.
Labelled "experimental".

There seems to be 64bit version of Cygwin available now. That's another environment to test on.

Since bug #20392 (in 2.4) freeciv has been building cleanly for win64. This task is for tracking (probably long) way to providing win64 binaries.

As our later versions have lifted a number of earlier limitations, and made rather massive games possible, it's AFAIK already possible that 32bit server could hit the boundaries of addressable memory in a game set for max player count and world size.
It's also worth considering that as an intermediate step we provide only server in win64 form, as the server is usually much easier to get ported than all the client library dependencies.

I'll provide some unofficial support for win64 via crosser while there's no official win64 installer.

Is there official win64 builds of any of our dependencies? How far we're from installer environment where the server side could be built?
