Somewhat wonkier Windows problem

I think that there is a 64-bit compiler in there, though it seems to not be the default.
I saw three different command-line choices, and one is 64-bit, which I am using.

The available copies of the DirectX SDK (later than 2004) were not recognized as 32-bit
by configure -- doesn't mean that they're not, it just decided that they were 64-bit given
its current state, so I had to see if I could find a 64-bit compiler.

I can supply more details tomorrow, and check a little harder to ensure it really is 64-bit.
