Yes - I know. What I want is that the next boost release will be
corrected - so that I don't need to bother with the system

That's not what I want. I need to know the place/file where I can place
the info that gcc on HP/UX (PA-RISC) should be default and shared
libraires should also be created by default.
Sorry - I didn't found this info in the documentation - may I overlooked

If I put 'import toolset : using ;' into it then on HP/UX for Itanium
the gcc would also be default but aCC should be.
Maybe I introduce some 'if [ os.version ] = 11.11' or so?!
