Subject: [Boost-testing] msvc x64 and bigobj

I'm the author of Geometry.Index. I'm trying to figure out why some msvc
x64 runs fail. Those runners are:

DrWeb x64 (all)

There is a compilation error:

fatal error C1128: number of sections exceeded object file format limit :
compile with /bigobj

Other msvc runs are compiled without errors. I've noticed that
parameters are different in those cases. The ones that do compile uses:

"--bjam-options=\"-j4 address-model=64\""

and the erroreous ones:

"--bjam-options=-j4 address-model=64"

Is this an error in parameters? Or is it normal for big files? In this
case, is there and what is the policy of defining /bigobj flag for msvc in
test Jamfile?
