I'm not aware.  It looks as if his article


was only meant for 32-bit pil builds.

On the other hand and on the topic of Windows 64-bit pil builds, Joe
is currently working on and very close to a solution based on midipix.


He has been working closely with the midipix author for many weeks now
(back and forth on IRC) to iron out particular problems with getting
pil ported there.

There is not much in the way of documentation yet, but Joe has
cataloged some pil patches related to the midipix build here:


(and there might be more he has not pushed yet; not entirely sure.)

At any rate, when we see Joe (joebo) on #picolisp let's remind
ourselves to ask him to update us about it here on the ML.
