Inkscape Devlibs 64-bit are a bundle of libraries and tools used to compile Inkscape on Windows 64-bit. It is hosted in a Launchpad project. They have been compiled with SJLJ exception handling (not SEH), and are significantly newer than the 32-bit version of these libraries.

bin/gdb.exe was cross-compiled from one of User:LiamW's machines. The configure line was:

CC="x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc" LDFLAGS="-L/home/liam/gdb/install/lib -static -lexpat -Wl,-Bdynamic" \
CPPFLAGS="-I/home/liam/gdb/install/include" ./configure --prefix=/home/liam/gdb/install \
--host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --with-expat

Aspell 0.60.6.1

aspell 0.60.6.1 was compiled (by Johan) using MSYS, the rest of devlibs64, and mingw64 compiler used for building Inkscape too. I.e.:

 export PATH=/c/mingw64/mingw64_posix_sjlj/bin:/c/devlibs64/bin:$PATH
 export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/c/devlibs64/lib/pkgconfig

One file had to be modified slightly. aspell-0.60.6.1/common/file_util.cpp, line 49:

 -     || (asc_isalpha(file[0]) && file[1] == ':')
 +     || (isalpha(file[0]) && file[1] == ':')

No special configure flags were used:

   CFLAGS = CXXFLAGS = "-O2"
   ./configure

The make files produced contain two errors, both in the file "libtool". Open that file, search for "x86_64-w64-mingw32-static/lib" and remove the quote (') after that string.
