You might start by downloading 21.3, or when CVS is restored to full
functionality, checking out the current CVS, which has 7 years worth
of bugfixes and other changes compared to 19.34. Some of those changes
are 64 bit implementations for other platforms. You might also want
to subscribe to address@hidden (see where
development discussions tend to happen.

The Windows port of Emacs does not use autoconf in its build process,
unless you want to go the Cygwin route (though 64 bit support for
Cygwin would be a prerequisite).
