I've checked in something, which improves what you had.

For started, right now I've setup the code so that it should
be used outside Boost tree. Invoke bjam like so:

    bjam -sBOOST_ROOT=<path-to-boost-svn-checkout> ...

There are several new properties that can be specified, as
defined in Jamroot:

        feature.feature boost.locale.iconv : on off : optional incidental ;
        feature.feature : on off : optional incidental ;

        feature.feature boost.locale.posix : on off : optional incidental ;
        feature.feature boost.locale.std : on off : optional incidental ;
        feature.feature boost.locale.winapi : on off : optional incidental ;


        bjam -sBOOST_ROOT=<..> boost.locale.posix=off

makes the posix backend to be not built. iconv and ICU configuration
appears to work, but not that I could not test external iconv due to
not even having such library in my package manager.

Can you let me know if this works for you and what is missing.
