Does anyone provide Windows 64-bit versions of GMP and/or MPFR libraries ?

I know Brian Gladman provides the makings, along with instructions - but I 
couldn't get it to happen using the free version of VC 8. Clicking on the 
'gmp.sln' file did result in opening up the VC 8 gui ... quickly followed by 
a series of pop-ups telling me (repeatedly) things like  "Solution folders 
are not supported in this version of Visual Studio", and "The project 
consists entirely of configurations that require support for platforms which 
are not installed on this machine. The project cannot be loaded".

Normally, I use MinGW in an MSYS shell, but MinGW is still strictly 32 
bits - and the MSYS shell is currently broken on Vista 64 anyway.
