Um, OK.

Is there a way to achieve this without messing around with a file living
_inside_ the boost source tree?

My user-config.jam now looks like this:

import toolset : using ;

using hp_cxx : 65_042_tru64 :
   <cflags>"-version V6.5-042"
   <ldflags>"-version V6.5-042 -use_non_shared_libcxx"

using python : 2.4 : /opt/Python-2.4.1 ;

Invoking bjam now gives:

boost-HEAD/libs/test/test> bjam -a -n --v2 hp_cxx-65_042_tru64
warning: toolset hp_cxx initialization:
