Subject: [Boost-build] Trouble building Boost 1.47 64-bit libraries on Linux with gcc. Error is "sorry, unimplemented: 64-bit mode not compiled in"
From: Tim Musson (Tim.Musson_at_[hidden])

I think I must have a basic misunderstanding or incorrect configuration,
but I am not able to build 64-bit Boost libraries. The example below is
for the Thread library, but the Chrono lib had the same error (but on
error_code.cpp). For history, I have compiled the 32-bit versions fine.

If it matters, the host processor is 32-bit OS (64-bit Intel proc?) and
I want to cross-compile for 64-bit OS and 64-bit Intel / Xeon proc.

p.s. I searched the archives for "64-bit mode not compiled
in" and found relevant.
