[fpc-devel] I've asked this before, but perhaps I wasn't specific enough that time: what do I *personally*, specifically need to do to ensure that a native Windows 64-bit build winds up on the FPC website for the next release?

It should be kept in mind also that neither 32-bit or 64-bit FPC use GNU LD
for linking on Windows by default, but rather FPC's internal one, and it's
not hard to imagine why that might perform better on 64-bit as well.
