I'm currently not working on DWT. When I will do that again it will be
on the OS X port. I'm still trying to keep it up to date with the latest
version of DMD, reviewing pull requests and helping out here.

Absolutely. First, there are someone else that is already working on a
64bit port, if I understand it correctly . Perhaps you could collaborate.
As for the guidance. I think it's easiest to just try and compile it for
64bit and see what errors you get. Then I can help with more specific
problems that you encounter.
Start by removing the "-m32" flags in build.d , which forces it to
compile for 32bit. Then I would guess most errors will be for types
declared as "int" when they should be declared as "size_t" or "ptrdiff_t".
I have no idea how the GTK and Gnome interfaces work, if they are
different on 64bit. I didn't write the original code for DWT.
