Subject: [Boost-build] HP-UX build with GNU

>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
> GCC:4.1.1
> Boost:1.34
> 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?
> Threading:
> 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?
> Thanks!
