So, while it compiled, are you saying it may not have correctly cross 
compiled for the Win64 environment? Is there something else I should 
have done to make it work? If the code is "wrong in general" then how do 
I get it to work in the cross compile environment I am running (mingw 
with Ubuntu)? I followed the directions from the Wiki page. Was there 
something I missed?
