The issue here is there is nothing wrong with mingw-w64 as they link to
As defined here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/a6xkkxfz.aspx

On little endian we can just ignore the warning but depending in the
strictness of the build / package system this is not an option.
I'll CC this to Kai one of the maintainers of mingw-w64 and see whats
possible on their end.

I'm not fully sure but it may or may not be possible for them to change to
size_t pointer.
Ultimately this is the fault of some Microsoft architect who didn't care
about x64 at the time msvcrt was created.
