This is /not/ a trivial issue. It may
be easy to do, but:
a) _GLIBCXX_DEBUG was broken last time I tried it
   a few years ago. It won't work with all versions
   of gcc.
b) Anything the changes the ABI of the compiled
   libraries needs careful consideration and must
   be documented. The libraries that are built need
   to be ABI compatible with code that isn't compiled
   using Boost.Build.
c) <runtime-debugging>on is part of <variant>debug,
   but I don't think _GLIBCXX_DEBUG is a standard
   part of debug builds with gcc.
