Though I question the point of creating an XCode project to build boost as
a framework, here is how I would suggest that you proceed. Build the
libraries that interest you using "bjam -d2", together with any additional
build features/variants that you may require. The output from the above
command will give you the necessary list of files and compiler options. You
can then figure out how to build an XCode project that will produce the
same compiler options, using the required files. You can check your work by
comparing the XCode build results with the bjam -d2 output.
