Build it yourself, there currently aren't any official 64-bit binaries  
because there is no 64-bit machine in the build farm.  If someone  
would either donate a 64-bit machine or figure out how to host a 64- 
bit build on a 32-bit machine, then we could add official 64-bit builds.

Yes, check the archives to see which.  Most do work fine though, its  
just a few that don't/
