I'm no expert on boost, but it's really going to depend on (a) which
portions of boost you want and (b) how you'll be running vxworks
(kernel vs. RTP) and what target.
6.5 has issues in many places, some targets more than others. Maybe
consider being more specific?
That said, you'd also have to set up bjam for a cross-compile, so it'd
also help to know the host environment.
