Everything that worked before this update should
continue to work with unchanged behavior.
In addition, all of the following should work:
b2 [options] architecture=X
b2 [options] address-model=Y
b2 [options] architecture=X address-model=Y
If either architecture or address-model is
unspecified, then the behavior will be the
same as if it were set to the compiler default.
(For msvc, this is specified as x86/32).
"Works" means that the libraries are built for
the correct architecture, although there's no
easy way to verify this automatically. The
best way I can think of is to write a trivial
program to link against the newly generated
libraries. file might also work.
If architecture and address-model are not
specified, they should not appear in any
