      Patch 7.3.460
      Problem: Win32: UPX does not compress 64 bit binaries.

      + As of 2011, UPX still does not support compressing 64-bit EXE's; if you have
      + built a 64-bit vim then an alternative to UPX is 'MPRESS'. MPRESS can be found
      + at:

      ADDITION: NLS support with MinGW
