Subject: [Boost-build] path length too long for 64 bits builds

we have an issue since we have added threadapi= .

On 64 bits windows machines we are seen

Austin Beer said in

"FYI, the 64-bit Windows builds are failing due the unit tests exceeding
the 260 character filepath limit on Windows. Every filepath includes
|\msvc-14.1\debug\address-model-64\threadapi-win32\threading-multi|. Do
you know if there is an easy way to shorten this? On the 32-bit builds
the filepaths don't have |\address-model-64| which is just enough to
keep them under the 260 character limit so they don't fail."

Is there a workaround to this issue without changing the specific part
of the test files folder structure?
