You don't need to specify a platform on Linux either, and I would recommend 
against it. The default is linux-g++ and that works by using the default g++ 
and default architecture. linux-g++-64 is for building 64bit apps on old 
distros where 64bit is not the default or for some other reason still uses 
lib64 dirs but they aren't in the default library search path. On neon being 
Debian based using linux-g++-64 is just wrong, they never had lib64 dirs.
