Currently, you don't need to override anything to build the Boost
libraries that can be used with the v110_xp toolset.

Unfortunately, cflags=/arch:IA32 must be specified to make the Boost
libraries compatible with old CPUs that don't support SSE (we have
several customers who complained about this when we had switched to the
VS2012). SSE2 is the default architecture for the VS2012.
