In that case, I don't think I want to go the "configure-like route". To the
inexperienced user, these distinctions are somewhat arbitrary and cause the
options to be somewhat verbose. I'd rather go with something that maps
directly to our feature-space:

--c++-stdlib=stlport --inlining=on --toolset=gcc

or, using implicit features:

stlport --inlining=on gcc
