And I assume you never got an answer... well, that's probably because this
is an abandoned project from 7 years ago and he doesn't care anymore :)

I wouldn't call this "obscure", seems like a nice/useful object, but not a
"relevant" one (meaning not "famous" and widely used external/library like
the ones from extended)

Anyway, usually people provide the source code with a license that makes it
clear what you can do or not, but this repository has NO LICENSE... this is
probably because the author didn't care much on how to license it and I bet
it's because he doesn't care much about what people will do with it.
Licenses are useful to make restrictions, but not allowing one to provide a
build for 64 bits would be sort of insane in the open source world.

I probably have a better clue than you, but it's not like that means much
:) nonetheless, I'll say it's usually not a big deal making it work for 64

I'd write him one last time saying "I'll fork this and distribute, if you
have something against it, say it now or never" :)

you can then open a new thread and ask people here for help on making a 64
build for this, I'd help as I can.
