should not be a problem as long as you provide the correct properties at b2
command line (architecture, address-model, binary-format, abi ...) for
it is nearly impossible to provide assembler implementations for all
combinations of architecture + address-model + abi + binary format +
compiler/assembler (especially to have those systems to develop on)?
