I just looked, and right now the code is returning the particular build
of ctest being used. So, on a 64 bit machine with a 32 bit build of
ctest, it will report 32 bits. I am thinking this discussion really
does not belong on the boost-cmake list. We should most likely take it
off the list. Dave, Julien Michael and I should be able to fix this
and get it working as expected, I will report back to this list when it
is working.
