Comment(by esseffe):

 Hi Robe,

 I've been able to succesfully compile GEOS-trunk [geos-20121123 nightly
 snapshot] on MinGW-64 v.4.7.0

 Anyway I've noticed a very puzzling issue caused by ./configure (please
 note: it works nicely on MinGW 32, this issue is strictly limited to MinGW
 64, and the same identical issue affects the GEOS 3.3.6 ./configure

 checking whether long long int is 64 bits... no
 configure: WARNING: Could not find a working 64bit int type, you may
 weird bugs (undefined behaviour)

 the cause explaining for this oddity is in this line of the ./configure
 exit(! does_int64_work());

 simply changing the above line as follows seems to be an effective
 if (does_int64_work())

 I strongly suspect that Win64 has its own opinions about exit(), true and
 false :-D
