[Mono-dev] What is the status of the Windows x64 port?

     I'll let Bill Holmes give more details, as he has been working on
finishing the port. At this point, I believe the regressions tests on Win64
are only slightly worse than on Win32 (maybe 5-10 more tests failing, IIRC).
I don't believe a full bootstrap has been attempted with mcs yet.

The biggest problem for automated build/release is integrating into the
current cygwin based mono build process. This may only be the biggest
problem as I/Bill have little Makefile/autotools experience. I started
working on producing a make target for the mono runtime to be built with
MSVC and using the output for the full build, but have been busy with a few
other things at this point.
