Why do you need an x64 build; there's no benefit over x86...

There's a benefit for an operating system [and some games/applications] to be compiled as a 64bit executable just not for ScummVM. It doesn't address anywhere near the 32bit memory limit thus has no need/benefit of it. When/if 32bit support is removed from an operating system then I'm sure there'll be one made available.

For reference, Visual Studio is still only shipped as a 32bit app.
