Found that in the doc:
"For cross-compiling the lib you must specify certain additional
properties at bjam command line: target-os, abi, binary-format,
architecture and address-model. "
But no clue on what to specify...
I already use target-os=windows and address-model=32 or 64 but not
binary-format and architecture.
