Ah ok, so you've still got the SDK version that was originally
shipped with the box of VS 2008. AFAIR there was a recommendation
somewhere to upgrade the SDK if you want to build for x64, as the
early versions were rather incomplete. But I can't find that text
now. However MSDN has a SDK selector guide:

Looks like the first three columns are for v7.0, v6.1 and v6.0
respectively. But don't blame me, if your installation goes boom
after the upgrade. :-)

So I guess I should mention in the docs that you need WinSDK v7.0
to get LuaJIT to compile for Windows/x64. Ok, done.
