I still do not understand, why not include (for example new 
mssqlconnector) with Win64 build?
I do not have Win64 machine so I can not test, but I expect, that there 
is no problem complile FreeTDS/db-lib for Win64 so if only reason for 
excluding package from Win64 is "missing client library", then this 
reason is not valid.
Can anybody explain please why some sql-db connections are presented on 
Win64 and some not?
