Part of the answer to this is, maybe, provided by:

which contains:

Then, the flags invocation says that whenever verbatin.inline-file
action is run, the value of the verbatim-options feature will be added

all declared as features of the gcc toolset (or more precisely,
the superclass of gcc, i.e. the unix toolset)?
