Been playing around with it a little bit for fun and profit. If you look 
at the Wine64 wiki page you see the current state.

The changes are mostly in, there is a bug in gcc with handling it, but I 
got the patch for it so locally it works. Basic programs winelib 
programs like winecfg work.
The most succesful binary I ran was a pacman for win64, but the only 
thing it does is throw up a messagebox 'unable to load resources'.

Getting it in an AJ approved form is a bit harder, but I'm working on it.
