I assume that this is a Cygwin question. Please direct Cygwin questions to
the cygwin mailing list, so that other people can participate in and benefit
from the conversation.
AFAIK, Cygwin is as of now a purely 32-bit environment. Until there's a 64-
bit DLL to link against, I don't think a 64-bit stunnel would be possible or
useful. I also don't have a 64-bit Windows machine on which to build or
test one. Cross-compiling might be possible, but honestly this would be far
down my list of priorities.
Once Cygwin becomes a 64-bit environment, then it probably won't be hard to
release a 64-bit version of stunnel. But I haven't seen any discussion of
that happening, and I guess that it's still a ways off.
If you don't want to wait for Cygwin, you can probably build your own 64-bit
stunnel by following the instructions at
