The win64 port was not finished. This platform is different from others
mostly because
a pointer (64bit) is larger than a long (32bit on all Windows flavors)

Is the 32-bit build safe to use on 64-bit Windows?

Yes, like many other 32-bit programs pypy for win32 works on Windows 64-bit.
It will be limited to 3Gb of memory, of course.
