The latter.  If you use the MinGW port of GCC to build, you don't have
an alternative, anyway, as there's no 64-bit of that yet.

You checked out from the trunk, while the pretests are delivered from
a release branch.  The differences are not very large, so if you
prefer to debug this in the CVS version, go ahead with that.

But others do, and if you produce information from the debug session,
they will guide you through the process.

But please, if you decide to give it a go, report the results on
emacs-devel@gnu.org, not here.

Thanks in advance.
