It looks like I'm not the only one that has wanted jam.h updated to
define the OSPLAT. OSPLAT, in my opinion, should always be defined --
for "sparc", "x86" and now "x86_64". Wouldn't it make sense to define
this in the Boost CVS sources rather than have several people maintain
their own patches?

Who will make this change? Rene?

Thank you,

Jared Robinson
