Thanks DJ!

After spending the whole afternoon from 4pm to now (8pm) I gave up
trying. Though OpenSSL compiles now (I had to use VS command prompt not
WinSDK command promt) with warnings (removed /WX switch from makefile) I
cannot compile libjavahl or the svn client. Some of the libraries built,
some not, other after modifying their makefiles. A major problem was
that CL could not find sqlite3.h so I had to correct the path in the
file (nothing else worked), then the Linker did not find sqlite3.lib so
I built one from the def-file (but the dll is not x64). And so on.

I was to add many lib files into the linker options for libjavahl,
finally there were errors about imports starting with __impl.

Since I don't know whether this leads to anything I hope that there will
be x64 binaries available from the official site shortly.

Regards, Andreas
