No it should be fine.

First check the output from the config_info program - that will tell you
what is being detected at present - plus which config headers are in use.

Then try building config_test, and add defines to the config system intil it
builds (and let us know the result).

Finally try running the Boost regression tests - Boost + VC7.1 currently
passes all the tests, so there is no reason why the same should not be true
on IA64. There may be some compiler/platform specific fixes in some places
that need updating though.
