If you happen to know a way to distinguish the two versions on preprocessor
level, a fix would be easy.

I don't think that currently there is any distinction at all between 4.x
and 5.x, neither in boost nor in or in the toolset.

What really amazes me is that you can use V6.5 on Tru64 4.x, I always
thought that V5.x was the latest compiler toolset for Tru64 4.x.
