Actually, I think this too is also very straight forward; all you need to do is follow the instructions below. (Trust me, this is better than me providing you files to copy and manipulate only to get confused :) ).

Copy the original freetype-\builds\win32\vc2010 to freetype-\builds\win64\vc2010

Apply the changes mentioned in the previous email.
Then apply the following:
  1. On the menu bar, choose ProjectProperties.
  2. Expand the Configuration Properties node, and choose General.
  3. Change the Output Directory value to the new output directory.

Can you help, this is, provide a patch or a zip file with the
necessary data?  No FreeType core developer is a Windows user.
Ideally, I would like to have a directory `builds/win64' which
contains a ready-to-run project file for a fitting compilation
environment so that your described actions are reduced to an absolute
minimum (additional steps should be mentioned in the corresponding
`index.html' file).
