Boost Testing :

I'm totally new to boost.build and never really used jam before so please
bear with me.
I have started to run the regression tests for Windows XP x64 edition. The
compilers we use are VS 2005 and Intel 9.1. I have run into a few problems:
1. I have managed to make the regresstion to use the 64-bit compiler. I was
hoping I could simply specify msvc-8.0_64 (or msvc-8.0_x86_64 for
cross-compile) as toolsets but somehow it wouldn't take it. I
tried --toolsets=msvc-8.0,address-model=64 and that worked but I'm not sure
it is the right way. The results showed up as msvc-8.0 but I would really
like to use a different name such as msvc-8.0_64 etc.
2. It looks like the current msvc.jam does not support native 64-bit
compiling. It always uses the cross-compilers. I imagine it should not be
hard to add it.
3. I'm about to start the tests with Intel 9.1 and would appreciate hints on
how to set it up.
