Resolving Windows 64-bit linker issues

Phyx
Hi Darren,

I'm afraid I don't off the top of my head. I've never had to look at that
file yet. On my way to work this morning I was reading up on what mingw64
uses .refptr for. So now I understand at least that part. But I'm afraid I
can't offer any advice on how to tackle it in GHC at the moment.

Regards,
Tamar

Hi Tamar,

Thank you for the offer.

Do you have any thoughts or advice on approaching changes to the existing
PE code in Linker.c? I'm wondering if this was destined to be extended into
support for PE+ given the absence of .refptr and $.

Cheers,
Darren
