Can someone point me to the places in the jamfiles I'm going to need to change to clue boost in that it ought to compile arm for win8? I've got all the addons to MSVC that you need, we compile windows 8 arm and apollo all the time here. I just need to get boost clued in that it should change a few flags.
If you just need to add options, then you can
use cxxflags=... and linkflags=... on the command
line or use
using msvc : /version/ : /command/ : <cxxflags>... <linkflags>... ;
when initializing the toolset.
If it requires more substantial changes,
the logic controlling it is in tools/build/v2/tools/msvc.jam
You may also need to pass architecture=arm on the
