While you're looking at boost/detail/endian.hpp, could you please add
_M_X64 to the list of little endian platforms? _M_X64 is the Microsoft
define for the AMD64/INTEL64(EM64T) platform and definitely signals a
little endian platform.

(I didn't have any luck with my previous two requests concerning this
matter on the list.)

Thank you,
