I posted the patch to Boost.Build mailing list last Friday but I do not see
the message. Strange.

It is just a patch to correct the vacpp.archive action with
address-model=64. Currently, it generates incorrect archive command ie) ar
ru-X ru64... when it should be ar -X 64 ru... Its a minor jamfile change
but archiving will fail in 64 bit without it. It does not affect Iostreams
specifically it is more of a general 64 bit build issue.
