Yes, I read this in "Performance optimization" in the GMP pdf manual.  I see it 
is the same in the online manual too.

Hmmm, so I guess if there is no x86-64 assembly for Windows 64, it won't really 
help to run the tuneup program?  This is okay as I was just seeing if I could 
speed up an already fast library.  Thank you for helping me get this far.
