Yeah, sorry for that ... I'm already compilling GtkSharp assemblies 
(sources are from SVN repo) on Windows x64 platform using my custom 
makefiles. I've got glib-sharp, Mono.Cairo, pango-sharp, atk-sharp, 
gdk-sharp and gtk-sharp already compiled - now it is time for gtkdotnet, 
glade-sharp and maybe something else. I will upload it all tomorrow and 
post a link here. I can provide those makefiles, but I doubt you want 
them as you no longer want to support windows makefiles (stated in 
/makefile.win32 in SVN).
