Hm - it was a suggestion by Vladimir Prus.
What I want is a default toolset configuration of gcc on HP/UX (version
11.11) because the available aCC on this PA-RSIC system ist too old
(version 3.x) in order to compile boost. HP will never ship aCC version
6.x on PA-RISC systems.
Thatswhy I suggest to use gcc as default!

If I compile boost on HP/UX 11.11 with gcc (because the only available
compiler on this platform able to compile boost)
with bjam --toolset=gcc the static and shared libraries should be
generated. Why should I add this to projects?

It is annoying that I've fight to get the combination of gcc and HP/UX
11.11 since may of this year.
