Our windows build machines have trouble building the 64-bit version of
gdsfmt. If you look on CRAN, the windows binary provided there is a
32-bit only version.

You might communicate with the maintainer of gdsfmt and ask if they
intend to support 64-bit Windows. if not, what we can do is mark
GWASTools as unsupported on 64-bit windows.
