New submission from Jason Morgan <jasonm at picochip.com>:

Python2.7 has no proper support for mings64.  You can use environment path to trick compiler into using mings64, but this will cause conflict with other builds.
Adding a mings64 compiler options is much more sensible as both mingw32 and mings64 can co-exist. (mingw64 has a prefix for all it's exe's)

Suggest following patch, tested with mingw-w64-1.0-bin_i686-mingw_20110328 and Python-2.7.1(x64) on Windows7.

Diff attached.
