Boost and 64-bit mode

Although my patch for Boost 1.32 contains settings to build Boost at 64-bit mode I have not tested it. Upcoming Boost 1.34 uses new build scheme so I do not plan to spent significant time to allow 64-bit at Boost 1.32.

Comments:

I used your patch to build Boost 1.32 in 64-bit mode with the latest Sun compiler patches. With the comandline: bjam "-sBUILD=<threading>multi <runtime-link>dynamic <instruction-set>v9" "-sTOOLS=sunpro" -sSUNPRO_CXX="CC -xtarget=native64 -xarch=v9 -xcode=abs64 -I\\"../../../\\" " I was able to compile filesystem, program_options and iostreams (these are all Boost libraries that we need for our product). Our applications run without problems using these libraries.

I forgot to mention that filesystem in Boost 1.32 has a critical bug in the directory_iterator implementation on Solaris (it does not work!). This is a known bug, which is fixed starting from RC 1.34. If you need a patch for Boost 1.32, please feel free to contact me via my web site www.athelas-gmbh.de.
