I was thinking of getting the x64 build to a point where we can
provide an msi installer for it. We don't have to call it "stabel" yet
if we don't think we should, an easy installer would help testers a

That's not really necessary!
Yes, VS.NET2005 now uses _WIN32 instead of WIN32, but you can set
those in the preprocessor definitions.
Check my patch for apr.hw for example - with that little change, I
could avoid changing every single apr file (changing WIN32 to _WIN32).

No problem. We're not forced to get an x64 release out, there's nobody

One tiny little thing I've noticed with your last commits:
you don't set the svn:eol-style property to "native"! This makes
commit mails have 'double lines' (every line has an empty line added
to it), which makes those mails difficult to read.

Can you please set those properties (just set up autoprops):
* branches/x64/ext/svn-x64-libintl/README.txt
* branches/x64/ext/svn-x64-libintl/diff-0.14.1.txt
* branches/x64/ext/svn-x64-libintl/inc/libintl.h
* branches/x64/ext/berkeley-db/db4.3-x64/include/db.h
* branches/x64/ext/berkeley-db/db4.3-x64/include/db_cxx.h
