Without the asterisks (*), of course. They are not part of the command
line, and a somewhat poor choice of emphasis characters.

Explaining what is done, <cxxflags> is a Boost.Build property, much like
<runtime-link>, <address-model>, and so on.

The way you indicate those on the b2 command line is by stripping the
angle-brackets (<), (>) and indicate the value after an equals sign (=),
resulting in things like:

address-model=64 link=static cxxflags=/W4

Also note that toolset is a property, so it shouldn't really have the
leading double-dash (--), that is just allowed for historical reasons.
