We are working on the necessary changes for Win64 and will
release those with mxODBC 3.1.

There are a couple of things that need to be tweaked, since ODBC length
information is 64-bit on Win64, while at the same time longs are still
32-bit. On 64-bit Unix, both are 64-bit, which makes things a bit
easier to handle.
