Inkscape Devlibs 64-bit are a bundle of libraries and tools used to compile Inkscape. 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.

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.
