digitalmars.D - 64-bit compilation

I'm pretty sure the answer is no, and I guess this is a Walter question. 
Can DMD compiler output 64-bit code for AMD and Intel 64-bit machines?  How 
difficult would it be to modify the back end to produce 64-bit output?

Right, it's no :) I think Walter has previously stated that this will be a major task, but one that he hope to have completed this year (IIRC), but check out the C++-group for details.
