A comment near the front of omp.h says "These two structures get
edited by the libgomp build process to reflect the shape of the two
types".  So presumably it is possible to generate the 64-bit version,
and presumably this must have been done in order to compile the 64-bit
version of the OpenMP library that is supplied with Rtools.

Maybe there's no provision in the build process for having two omp.h
files at once, though...
