http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jamboost/message/10626 is my attempt to
submit an amd64 toolset. It is for the amd64 compiler from platform SDK,
so you need to change the setup command there to reflect MSVC setup path
in order to work with x64. Something like
local setup = "\"C:/Program Files/Microsoft Visual Studio
8/VC/vcvarsall.bat\"" x86_amd64" ;
- AFAIK there are V1 toolsets for x64.
- The best way to implement x64 is to patch core msvc toolset to support
