x64 support

I hope to have an x64 version available sometime after 1.0-Release is out. However, there are still technical difficulties to overcome with it. It appears that despite the hype, it is next to impossible to run 32 bit binaries on an x64 system. Only the simplest "c" programs will run, anything that uses several dynamic libs do not seem to work. This may change in the future, but for now it means that the x64 version will have to use special x64 PBI's / binaries as well. I don't want to start supporting a seperate version like that, until the 32 bit version is all finished ;)
