I am working on a AIX pServer (or RS/6000) with a
64bit kernel and found the following build- and
ar-options on the last four lines in gcc.jam in the
boost source tree version 1.35:

# AIX variant of RS/6000 & PowerPC
flags gcc OPTIONS
<architecture>power/<address-model>32/<target-os>aix :
-maix32 ;
flags gcc OPTIONS
<architecture>power/<address-model>64/<target-os>aix :
-maix64 ;
flags gcc AROPTIONS
<architecture>power/<address-model>64/<target-os>aix :
"-X 64" ;

But when I build the boost source tree or my own
projects, these options are not used at all. Is there
a reason for this? How can I force the build to use
these options? I tried stuff such as:


But it does not make any difference.
