I need to compile boost as a 64 bit program using vacpp 8.0 compiler,
on AIX 5.3ml3, power5, p5-550 and p5-595.

I can compile boost with vacpp in 32bit mode fine, but all my
attempts at compiling it 64 bit have not resulted
with any success so far.

The vacpp toolset does not offer any options and does not allow for
any options or
configuration variables.

I do not understand the syntax of the vacpp-tools.jam file or (bjam
in general)
and cannot edit the file with any success.

I just need the following flags passed to the compiler:
<cxxflags> -q64
<linkflags> -q64
<arflags> -q64
