x64 Windows build

_______________________________________________

Hi,

I am running Windows Vista x64 and would like to set up an x64 build of BIND
Perhaps partly misplaced, but I seem to have a hard time collecting all the required tools to build the x64 build,
Perhaps the open source community isn't there yet to build x64 Windows builds, but to mee it seems that if a *nix x64 build is available for quite a while, a x64 Windows build should be possible.
I already have mingw64, but that is obviously not enough.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Regards,

Serge Fonville

Which tools?

It only becomes possible because people put the time and effort into
making it possible.

It would probably make more sense talking about mingw64 issues on the
mingw64 mailing list.

Sorry, the etiquette thing is not something I wrote. I think its
something the mailing list software adds automatically.

Cheers,

And the mailing list software top-posts the etiquette blurb, even.

Sorry, that is irrelevant. Either you are misunderstanding things, or
then I misunderstand what you mean.

The question you should be asking is whether the software in question
has been ported to 32-bit Windows. If it hasn't, then the fact that it
can be built on 64-bit Unixes has little significance. The difference
between Unix in general (32- or 64-bit) and Windows in general (32- or
64-bit) is much larger than the difference between 32- and 64-bit
Windows. If some software is reasonably portably written in the first
place, and it is portable to 32-bit Windows, then the additional steps
needed to port it to 64-bit Windows, too, are usually not that hard.
The API is after all the same on 32- and 64-bit Windows, just the
sizes of some data types are different.

You mean the software is the most impolite ? :-)
