Has anyone attempted to port libxml to windows XP x64? I am currently
porting some C++ code which links with xmlparse.lib library. If anyone has
xmlparse.dll and .lib for Win x64 platform, could you please let me know?
Alternatively, I don't mind compiling the sources for x64 platform, but I
couldn't find the entire source code (the one that includes .c files in
addition to .h). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Libxml compiles and runs fine for me on XP and Vista x64.  I have not
used the xmlparse library.

My only issue has been with xmlReaderForMemory - you can't use it with
a huge memory mapped file because it doesn't take size_t for length
like it should.

  Hum .... good point, I have made tests parsing > 4Gig files on 32bits
computers, but I never expected real XML files to go over 4GB (mea culpa),
and I'm afraid we might have some 32bit limits embedded in exported data
structure (though most of the _xmlParserInput is actually using
const xmlChar * to reference to data to that should work over 4GB.) 
  If it was only a problem of providing a new API I would do it without 
any hesitation, but I'm not sure this could be made to work really without
breaking ABI compatibility.
  If someone want to look at this, this sounds a good idea !
