I sent this to the boost users list, but it is more appropriate for me
to put sent it here:

 couple of questions for the HP gurus about Boost on HP-UX with GNU
GCC. I see that the development builds target this configuration, but
the 1.34 release does not, so I'm not sure that I can even do this with
the 1.34 build. I am new to using bjam so be gnetle.

Platform: HP-UX, on itanium ia64, 11.23, building for 64 bit
linker: hp-ux

User config file:
using gcc: : :<cxxflags>-mlp64 <linkflags>-mlp64

Is this suffcient, or do I need to indicate the archtiecture (ia64 on
itanium) in some way?

gcc.jam indicates that GCC on HP-UX does not support threading. We have
built many libraries with threading using GCC so is this an old comment
or is it specific to the gnu linker and not HP-UXs. Can I modify a
config file to support threading correctly?

Failing libs
Zlibs and bzlib builds fail. How do I disable building them? Can the
build fail and it's not a problem for the rest of the libraries.

Do I need to modify any of the source to work correctly? Would I be
better off using a development build?

Will boost work correctly on HP 11.31?
