Unless you built the libraries with address-model=64, the boost build
should default to a 32bit build. You can the flip between 32bit and 64bit
builds with bjam address-model=32 or bjam address-model=64 without
modifying the site-config.jam file.

I'm not sure one can specify compile options in that manner you have listed
