so far for windows we have been using CMAKE_CL_64 if this is needed
for other configurations we'd be better to define some global variable
like SCons BF_BITNESS,


	set(BITNESS 64)
	set(BITNESS 32)

For windows you can do...


While WIN32 is silly to define for win64 afaik we have the same
annoyance in the source code.
