The author of gdsfmt (who is in our group and also contributed to
GWASTools) says that he plans to support 64-bit Windows in the future,
but not in time for this release. So you should mark GWASTools as
unsupported on 64-bit windows for now.
Will 64-bit Windows users still be able to install GWASTools, since
gdsfmt is only in "Suggests" and not required for package functionality?
