I think you need to give the "arch" feature the "propagated" attribute. In
which can it will be propagated to all dependencies automatically.

You can write something nicer like:

project your_top_level_project : requirements <os>MACOX:<arch>fat ;

Typically, you can use target alternatives:

alias boost_filesystem : /boost/filesystem ;
alias boost_filesystem : : <toolset>yfc ;

When toolset=yfc, the second alternative will be selected, and... do
absolutely nothing.
