Sorry if I wasn't clear. That's exactly what I was trying to suggest: if someone wants a 64-bit Cygwin package, they should start by building such a package themselves, including any necessary changes to cygwin1.dll. Once you've got a working example, bring your results and patches to the maintainers.
