WIN64 uses PIC and there aren't any relocation issues so in some ways it's
less trouble than WIN32.

Yes that's the cause. Itanium wasn't a platform that was specifically included
during the validation so the build system might not handle it properly and the
result most likely wouldn't be validated anyway. 

Do normal WIN64 binaries work?
