I don't believe anyone has tried this.  The major difficulties will probably be building 64-bit versions of the various support libraries needed for the wincairo build.  This consists of zlib, libpng, libjpeg, cairo, openssl, curl, and opencflite.

I believe all of these will build cleanly under 64-bit, with the possible exception of opencflite.  CoreFoundation is obviously 64-bit clean, but I don't know if the Windows port modifications have been built or tested under 64-bit.

Good luck!
