Boost-Build :

As this thread shows, people are running into this problem over and over again.
Because of this problem, I myself have to use prebuilt bjam on HP-UX_ia64_gcc.

I think a patch for tools/jam/src/build.jam in

should be committed to trunk and made part of 1.35. It is confirmed that the
patch eliminates bjam crash. Once the problem in bjam causing the crash is
fixed, this workaround can be removed.

Since I was the one who submitted this patch, a usual question: Ok to commit?

It would be good to know exactly _which_ x86_64 you have.
Running gcc -v contains enough infos to be sure.
