Cannot build boost::serialization for x64 (cross compile)Robert Ramey

<Armin.Pies_at_[hidden]> wrote in message
I use the following parameters for bjam:
release address-model=64 --stagedir=${boostroot.dir}/stage64 stage
link=static runtime-link=shared threading=multi toolset=msvc
The boost build for the serialization library integrates tests calling
"no_std_wstreambuf_pass.exe" or "no_std_locale_pass.exe" which are, of
course, no Win32 applications.

Note that the boost build/test process should build and test these
applications. If these fails, then wide character versions of the
serialization library cannot work so they are skipped.

So I cannot run them under Windows XP (Win32) and the build fails.
But I need to build the library to be able to cross-compile our application
for x64.
Is there a switch to skip these tests?
