Hello, reporting back!

(Irc is fine, but people can't follow that easily, so here are my 

I installed cygwin and everything gcc that made sense, including the gcc 
package and mingw-gcc. I didn't install any 32bit compilers as far as I 
can tell. The installation target was my work windows 11 PC.

Using CONF=win64 compiled without any issues. It used 
x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc for compiling. I verified the binary is 64-bit, 
and not 32-bit. Starting works fine like I'd expect from a drawterm 
application. No issues at runtime so far.

However, Make.win64 mentions that I can set MING to nothing when not 
cross-compiling since it would just use gcc then. I tried it, but it 
failed at some #include (I think it was direct.h). It is possible that it 
uses the "other" gcc version I installed on cygwin which tries to find 
libraries that aren't installed.

In the end, mingw works fine and is also what the Readme states. I 
suggest adjusting the comment in the Make.win64 to prevent confusion and 
then publish it.

P.S. nice to have some 64-bit drawterm. I'd love to have it as a download 
at drawterm.9front.org.
