I am still working through the instructions for getting ready to build - 
I have some other non-software projects that will take a lot of my time 
this week.

By "Win64" do you mean any 64-bit MS-Windows system? If so, that is a 
very serious issue. I do development on a 64-bit Windows 8.1 system. Has 
anyone successfully built on that OS?

I am experimenting with installing Linux on other computers, but none of 
them has the compute power, memory, or monitor size for serious development.
