>From what I gathered, there are a few stupid problems with existing
patches to make guile build for mingw (, but there is the hard problem
that the garbage collector won't work on mingw x86_64 because it
expects that pointers can fit in longs.

Anyways, I say that if we can't have mingw x86_64, let's have i686 and
everyone will be happy enough. By the time i686 is insufficient,
Windows will already be another OS built around linux anyway (n.b. this
is a personal opinion ^^). But there is a chance I fundamentally
misunderstood something...
