Summary: darwin 64 bit support

Initial Comment:
To get 64-bit support, I was able to get a large chunk of
boost-1_33_1 to build on darwin by inserting
   -arch ppc64
in strategic places in the darwin-tools.jam file. This was sufficient to
be able to use the filesystem and program-options libraries in a 64-bit
app I've built that needs to access > 4GB. Some libraries failed to
build however, and I don't really know what I'm doing.

Attached is a patch file showing what I added where. Also, it would
probably be best to add
   -arch ppc -arch ppc64
to get "fat" binaries that work for both 32-bit and 64-bit code.
However I'm no pro with these things.
