Yes, very sure, and I spent a couple of late nights this week talking
to the mingw-w64 upstream.

You can build the packages currently in the Mercurial repository in
the order below.  After each package is built, you have to install it
before proceeding to the next package.

  mingw64-gcc-bootstrap (in mingw64-gcc/)

That should give you a working C and C++ compiler
(/usr/bin/x86_64-pc-mingw32-gcc and /usr/bin/x86_64-pc-mingw32-g++).

As I mentioned in the other thread, I generated what looked like a 64
bit Windows exe out of a very trivial C hello world program, but I
didn't have the chance to run it on Windows yet.
