As far as auto-linking is concerned it would be an easy change to make to
add in a 32/64 suffix as required: but we need to decide on a naming scheme
first and implement it in Boost.Build.

While we're at, there has also been a request for a "secure STL" on/off
feature - again the it's a binary incompatible feature that should be
mangled in the library file name.
