the 64 bit Cygwin seems to be quite stable now. We're still suffering
from a gcc problem which seems to affect C++ inline methods using
templates, so some C++ packages might not be buildable yet(*), but other
than that it looks pretty good.
I would like to ask those of you owning a 64 bit Windows machine to have
a look into the 64 bit distro and to try to build your packages. If
dependencies are missing, please tell us here. We can look into fixing
the missing deps together.
If you have build problems other than due to missing deps, please report
here, too. There are very likely still bugs in Cygwin and there might
still lurk bugs in gcc. Just make sure that you eliminated problems in
your project first. Datatype mismatches are pretty common bugs.
Today I installed cygwin64 and had no problems. I only noticed that
after I installed gcc-g++ 4.8.0 there was no 'cc' command available.
I saw that dos2unix has already been ported to 64 bit. So I assume I
don't need to take any action. I built them myself too to see if
everything went fine. I saw no problems.
I will build libunistring for 64 bit soon.
