It is not supported out of the box. If you feel like hacking a bit, try
locating the function that handles naming of boost libraries. It's
called 'tag' and is either in Jamroot or in boostcpp.jam -- depending
on the version of boost. In the invocations of 'format-name' functions add


to the list of properties to encode in the name.
