[security-dev 01198]: Re: PKCS11 and Win X64?

Hi Michael,

In JDK6, the primary reason we did not ship a win64 version of the 
SunPKCS11 provider is that we did not have access to any PKCS#11 
implementation to test with on win64. We did not want to ship something 
that could not be tested at all and could potentially be DOA.

I looked for a bugid, but don't see one offhand.

It shouldn't be too hard to enable such a build.
