it should be possible to use a cross-compiler and test via qemu if the
hardware is not easy to access ... a few years ago i used such at
toolchain in order to test altivec/neon code without having access to
ppc or arm hardware ...
it basically boils down to point the toolchain to the cross-compiler and
to run the testsuite via qemu. this was pretty straight-forward with
cmake though i'm not familiar enough with bjam to say it this can easily
be integrated ...
emdebian seems to provide quite binaries of cross-compilers for quite
some architectures ... so maybe emulating exotic architectures is easier
to achieve than getting access to the hardware
