There are currently two issues with win64. One is that swscale doesn't
build because of long being misused as register width (I'll fix that
on trunk probably over the weekend), and the other is

Even if we fix the compilation of swscale, silent and hard to track
bugs will still exist because of the xmm clobbering issue. So I
suggest we specifically disable win64 builds in configure for the 0.6
release (and print a warning explaining why), and possibly backport
the changes after they get fixed on trunk for 0.6.x.
