That allows me to make a conditional <cxxflags> or <link> or whatnot, by
appending it to the end.

How do I apply this to control whether a bjam directive (like [ run ... ])
is executed on a given platform?
I am trying to use this technique to run the same test multiple times with
different macros to engage
mocking so that error paths can be tested, and some combinations of macros
are superfluous on some
platforms. I would also like to use this technique to prevent a short
benchmark from building and running
in the debug variant.
