Yes its far from ideal but I compile a few packages for personally
usage in x64 aside from httpd binaries. All need the USE_32BIT_TIME_T

Lets not get started on compiling from CLI and getting machine type =
x64 compiler isn't mismatches and the other way around :( the only
solid way to compile x64 or x86 for that matter is using the IDE the
CLI methode is basically broke or crippled.
(starting the vs envirement from cmd.exe located in SysWow64 seem to
work though)

For now it is still Convalent only... the others mentioned to my
knowledge provide support only.

Yes, I'm not looking to link to community sites or other unofficial binaries.
But to placed where people can get commercial warranties and such.

I somewhat actively answer questions on the forum mostly relates to
the x64 binaries.
There is also a section there specificly for x64 where I have moderator powers.

Lost time I checked Stefen didn't provide warranties only limited
payed support via skype.
support NEQ warranties but I'll contact hem when I'm updating the page
to see if he does provide them. Can't hurt to check.

Again like the ApacheLounge he provides support and not warranties.
I use to provide answers on the forums too but it as vastly expanded
beyond apache alone,
now he also provides support for php, mysql, phpmyadmin,...
