EVALUATION

The problem is that as of b23, we now step into the deploy ws and do nothing for 64-bit.  We never did this before b23.  We're not seeing this error, because our deployment machines have these compilers.  RE's machines see this error because they don't have them.

The fix should be to ifdef out the deploy Sanity.gmk file unless BUILD_DEPLOY64 is defined.
