Subject: [Boost-build] correct properties for architecture (asm) selection
From: Oliver Kowalke (oliver.kowalke_at_[hidden])

I want to select the correct assembler file depending uppon the
properties given as args to bjam.

I've several asm for x86 (32bit/64bit), mips (32bit/64bit) ppc

Is it correct/sufficient to let the user specify following on
commandline (architecture and address-model are optiona properties and
thus not always set by

bjam toolset=gcc architecture=x86 address-model=32 for i386
bjam toolset=gcc architecture=x86 address-model=64 for x86_64

bjam toolset=gcc architecture=power address-model=32 for ppc32
bjam toolset=gcc architecture=power address-model=64 for ppc64

bjam toolset=gcc architecture=mips address-model=32 for mips 32bit
bjam toolset=gcc architecture=mips address-model=64 for mips 64bit
