   I just checked the Boost Build sources and the -march option is
defined in tools/gcc.jam and is a gcc option documented at:

   Never used clang myself, but I understand its idea is to be gcc
compatible. Unfortunately, after 15 minutes of googling I failed to find
any documentation explaining its command-line options. :-(

   I guess someone familiar with Clang should update its toolset
definition to use different options.

   Hope this helps.
