Subject: [Boost-build] build boost 1.40 on windows 7 - 32 bit and 64 bit libs
From: xmueller (customer001_at_[hidden])

hello all,
can anyone briefly explain how to build 32 bit and 64 bit boost libs on
windows 7 ?
my current approach is this:

32 bit debug libs - run bjam on cmd window:
bjam stage --build-dir=D:\Projekte\boost140libs toolset=msvc --link=static
--threading=multi --runtime-link=static --layout=tagged --variant=release

64 bit debug libs - run bjam on vs2008 x64 cmd prompt:
REM bjam stage --build-dir=D:\Projekte\boost140libs toolset=msvc
--link=static --threading=multi --runtime-link=static --layout=tagged
--variant=release --address-space=64

my problem:
all libs have same size. can this be ?
did i something wrong when building ?

thank you
