This is really good. I begun with a port of gdb (now about a half a year 
ago). If you like I can provide you my work on it. On the other hand, if 
you need some support for the x86_64 mingw target in crt, gcc, or 
binutils, please let me know.

The mingw64 should be an alias to x86_64-pc-mingw32, nothing more, nothing 
less. There were several discussion on that on gcc, and the conclusion was 
that the target triplet should be in future on gcc (i?86|x86_64)-pc-mingw.
