The naming change was intentional to allow 32-bit and 64-bit libraries
to be built in one pass and to live in the same output directory.

The latter is a common deployment requirement on Windows when shipping
both 32-bit and 64-bit executables, which previously required
workarounds such as using custom build ids or moving files to separate
directories, and also required building Boost twice with different options.
