there seems to be a working mingw64-environment:


"The mingw-w64 project is a complete runtime environment for gcc to support 
binaries native to Windows 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems. "

maybe mixing 32bit-dependecies from osgeo4w and 64bit GRASS isn't a very good idea, 
so maybe it would be necessary to build a new 64bit building environment with mingw64
and 64bit dependecies like gdal, proj, tcltk, etc.

but it would be a nice idea ... :o)
