msvc64 port produces bytecode executables that don't work on 32-bit versions #5115
Original bug ID: 5115
In the 64-bit MSVC version, output-value does the wrong thing on native ints and makes them unreadable by 32-bit versions of OCaml.
Also, if a 64-bit version of OCaml compiles a program with a large nativeint constant, the resulting bytecode will crash the 32-bit versions because they try to raise an exception before the global constants are initialized.
Steps to reproduce
Bootstrap with MSVC in 64-bit mode and try to use the resulting ocamlc, e.g. under cygwin -> crash
