> 5) When CPU is the bottleneck (antivirus turned off), the 32-bit hosted compiler is faster. This still needs confirmation, though, because your results show 32-bit being slower, but you didn't say whether antivirus was off.

Compilation speed of FPC is typically memory bandwidth/cache limited. So due to using smaller data types it is obvious that the 32 bit compiler is faster.
