One thing I learnt since last e-mail - MinGW haven't been compiled as 64-bit
binaries by anyone before.
I doubt that is correct.
I have no guess how you ended up with a build that includes assembly
code unsuitable for your host.
There aren't any suitable assembly code for 64-bit Windows. So build can't
include it. That's why configure parameters doesn't matter.
That is a misunderstanding. There are certainly ways to break a build
by passing nonsensical parameters!
Perhaps this is a GMP bug, perhaps you
worked around GMP's configure mechanims.
This is more like absence of MinGW 64 bit support than a bug.
I would expect it to work. GMP is programmed to exclude assembly for

proper bug report. I am a terrible guesser, and a conversation about
the possible reasons for a certain behaviour, without the facts, is a
waste of your time and the time of the subscribers.)
