Sorry for answering to my own post, but I looked into this more deeply
and still more questions:
The os feature is based on the jam $(OS) variable is it?
If so, the variable reflects the platform jam was compiled on, not
necessarily the platform the build is targeted for. E.g jam built with
vc7, target platform is cygwin. So os will be of little help.
Is there a concept of target platform in Boost.Build? Of course the
chosen toolset somehow implicitly carries this information too, but I am
thinking about something available from boost/config.hpp where compiler
and platform is separately factored out.
Would it be possible to get this platform information in bjam too?
