Having read the man page, as suggested by Ian McC, it's clear that
'-model ansi' is the standard way to go. Since our tru64cxx65 days are
numbered here, I will probably stick with Boost 1.31.0 for the duration.

However, I would suggest a strong admonition (recommendation) in the
docs about the desirability of using '-model ansi', justifying its use
as the default, and an easy way for the user to configure Boost
libraries with '-model arm'. (There may be applications that access
shared libraries that cannot be recompiled.)
