Subject: [Boost-build] how to use builtin features/default values
From: Oliver Kowalke (k-oli_at_[hidden])

how can I use builtin features like <architecture>, <address-model>?
If I use them as a requirement for a target alternative boost.build can
not resolve the alternatives. If I do a bjam --debug-building I see
that <architecture>, <address-model> is not set (as opposed to <target-os>).
I assumed that those properties will be automaticaly set by the values
of the current platform:
<architecture> -> X86_64
<address-model> -> 64
But it seams it's not! Maybe it's a bug?
help is appreciated,
