[Rd] Why is the 64bit Windows version of package RSVGTipsDevice not available on CRAN?

On CRAN, the package RSVGTipsDevice is only installed for 32bit Windows, and is not available as a 64bit package for Windows.

The file linked to in the package check summary on CRAN says "NB: this package is only installed for sub-architecture 'i386' ".

What do I need to do to make it available as both 64bit and 32bit on CRAN? (I am the maintainer of the package).

It builds, checks and runs fine as a 64 bit package on my own Windows 64 bit (XP) machine.

Has a flag has been set somewhere because some time in the past this package had problems running in 64 bit mode?

Here's the truncated output from the link from CRAN package check page:

http://www.r-project.org/nosvn/R.check/r-release-windows-ix86+x86_64/RSVGTipsDevice-00check.html

Here's the output of R CMD check on my own machine:

$ /cygdrive/c/R/R-2.14.0/bin/x64/R.exe CMD check RSVGTipsDevice_1.0-4.tar.gz
* using log directory 'D:/tplate/R/rforge/rsvgtipsdevice/RSVGTipsDevice.Rcheck'
