 In previous Tor Browser releases, the %BUILD_TARGET% used in the updater
 URL in Windows versions was `WINNT_x86-gcc3`. In Tor Browser 6.0, this
 changed to `WINNT_x86-gcc3-x64`, which broke our updater URLs.

 A quick fix was to apply this patch, and regenerate the .htacess we use to
 deliver the update manifests:
 diff --git a/tools/update-responses/config.yml b/tools/update-
 index 5e4d463f9262..4595544ec21e 100644
 --- a/tools/update-responses/config.yml

 However this change breaks the `check_update_responses_deployement`
 command, which uses the build_targets values in test URLs (without
 expecting them to be regexps), so other changes are required to fix that
