Subject: [boost] b2 --exec-prefix=...

Our "b2 --help" documentation says

--exec-prefix=<EPREFIX> Install architecture dependent files here.
                        Default: <PREFIX>

--libdir=<LIBDIR> Install library files here.
                        Default: <EPREFIX>/lib

and also supports --exec-prefix and when given, records it in

But it doesn't work and has never worked. Only --prefix is
honored, --exec-prefix is simply ignored.

I think that we should bring the documentation and the actual behavior in
sync, either by making --exec-prefix work as documented, or removing it from
the documentation.

Which one should we do? Comments?
