I've got the 64-bit version of mksh built and packaged but
unfortunately I'm not having much luck getting the virtual 64-bit Win8
to run.  I had it working previously on this laptop using VirtualBox
running XP but the IT department at work has since re-imaged the
laptop with Win7 and now the virtual Win8 install is hanging.  If
someone is brave enough to give the 64-bit version a spin I'll gladly
provide a link.
