Take a look at how it's done in python.jam:

  type.register PYTHON_EXTENSION : : SHARED_LIB ;
  # We can't give "dll" suffix to PYTHON_EXTENSION, because
  # we would not know what "a.dll" is: python extenstion or
  # ordinary library. Therefore, we specify only suffixes
  # used for generation of targets.
  type.set-generated-target-suffix PYTHON_EXTENSION : : so ;
  type.set-generated-target-suffix PYTHON_EXTENSION : <os>NT : dll ;
  type.set-generated-target-suffix PYTHON_EXTENSION : <os>CYGWIN : so ;

With the above, if you use:

  python-extension whatever : a.cpp ;

the extension will be determined by the statements above. You can adapt this
to your case.
