Thanks Mateusz.  I figured I was doing something wrong.  Your feedback is 
much appreciated.

I frequently build GDAL from current trank on Windows 7 64-bit using Visual 
Studio 11 (DP) for both, 32-bit and 64-bit.
I haven't noticed any problems.


(Note, PE32+ denotes 64-bit.)

To be on safe side, I always build in separate source trees trunk/ for 
32-bit trunk.x64/ for 64-bit
