 Due mainly to the sizeof(long) on mingw-w64, MythTV won't compile on
 mingw-w64, spouting numerous loss of precision errors. See
 for a table of integer sizes vs mingw-w64.

 The patch I've created for 0.25 allows compilation to complete, though I
 have not yet tested functionality since my backend is still 0.24, but if
 my tests doing this on fixes/0.24 previously are anything to go by things
 should work.
 I have not checked mythplugins, as I have never really managed to get them
 to cross compile.

 It will probably need someone more familiar with integer sizes to check
 that it doesn't mess any other platform up.
