Why couldn't we add small piece of code to support these brokeness?
I don't know jam good but this works, when added to borland.jam:

feature.feature lib-page-size : : free ;

rule archive
local pageSize = 256 ;

if <lib-page-size> in $(3:G)
pageSize = [ feature.get-values <lib-page-size> : $(3) ] ;

LIB_PAGE_SIZE on $(<) = $(pageSize) ;

actions updated together piecemeal archive
"$(.root)tlib" /P$(LIB_PAGE_SIZE) /u /a /C "$(<:W)" +-"$(>:W)"

Why borland.jam doesn't containe line that describes <linkflags>
feature? I can't pass linker options without this line:

flags OPTIONS <linkflags> ;

With best regards, Konstantin M. Litvinenko aka Dark Angel.
