The last time I checked, OpenSSL 64-bit (0.9.8 series) STILL didn't have
assembler optimizations. Without the assembler optimizations, 32-bit
builds with assembler support will run circles around the 64-bit builds
even on a 64-bit platform (when assembler support is added back in, then
the story will be quite different). So, yes, OpenSSL 64-bit CAN be
built, the question is whether or not to actually do it. Here's the
relevant text from the INSTALL.W64 file:

"Caveat lector

  As of moment of this writing Win64 support is classified "initial"
  for the following reasons.

  - No assembler modules are engaged upon initial 0.9.8 release."
