Cool. I've just updated "features.jam" to include the "address-model"
feature. And also split the "architecture" into "architecture" and
"instruction-set". And added entries for MIPS to the architecture and
instruction-set, using the names that GCC uses/gives.

I also updated the "gcc-tools.jam" to use and generate the flags for MIPS as
an example.

Not really... But take a look at what I did for gcc... it's a kludge, but it
kinda works.
