Well, <runtime-debugging> is a NT-specific feature, AFAIC. So its
basically useless on Linux. And <debug-symbols>on is used in my custom
variant and I want a release Qt :-((

I think that we are forced to drop debug/release support for 4.2 because
Trolltech removed the combined "debug_and_release" configuration. So
you have to build two Qt binaries for debug/release anyway.
So the way to go should be to add more options for configuring the
toolset, especially:
- version information, which should go to the generated paths (like
python.jam does), so you can have several Qt's installled.
- configuring of src/bin/lib/include/ paths instead of one prefix.

But this should be done when 1.34 is out.
And I think we should wait for Qt-34.2 final, too.

And as a last resort I have a set of Jamfiles for building Qt-4.x with
bjam :-))
