This one looks promising. Thank you. But I have a couple of additional

1) Where can I find which values for <os> do exist? Ideally I would
expect the list to be of the same values that the BOOST_PLATFORM from
the config headers can take. I suspect that this mechanism would need to
be embedded into the Boost.Jam core, true?

2) Does this work also for Boost.Build-v1? If not, how would I work
around this then?

3) Is it still required that the boost lib must be buildable with v1? At
least the standard setting of boost-build.jam in boost-root makes me
believe so.

Thank you,
