What porting is actually needed? There are certainly people using Boost on
Win64 already.

If you have the resources to help the most important thing you could would
be to run the regression tests regularly on Win64 (either IA64 or AMD64) and
report the results (sign up to the Boost-testing mailing list to help and
instructions for this). Many of us have the 64-bit compilers, but not the
platforms to run the executables on: so once the tests are run you should
get help in sorting out any problems.
