That's true true. It will also be built
if anything that you do specify depends on it.
In this case, the configuration check explicitly
builds it.

The configuration check is entirely based on whether
64.cpp compiles.

b2 --reconfigure clears the cache.

Ideally this should work, as well, but
it's a bit tricky to implement.
