Hooray! I can confirm adding -DMS_WIN64 to the preprocessor flags lets 
Blender run perfectly! Thanks for figuring that out :)

The speed differences are amazing. On the same scene with Cycles, the 
Visual Studio build takes 1min 33.15sec to render, while the MinGW-w64 
build (built with -O3 and -march=nocona) only takes 48.62sec. This is 
95% faster, almost double the speed!

Perhaps we should aim at getting this in trunk somehow?
