Subject: [Boost-build] How do I pass cxxflags to Boost libraries from within my jamfile?

(Repeating a question I posted on Stackoverflow:
I have a project with some requirements, one of which is to set the c++11
# ... etc
[ glob source/*.cpp ]
The library-specific sources are being compiled with the necessary c++11 flags,
however the Boost libraries mentioned do not. This is causing no end of binary
incompatibilities and linker errors.
I do not want to specify the cxxflags explicitly in either the user-config or
the command line. I would like to make sure the jamroot/jamfiles are all that is
necessary to build the project properly.
How do I "pass in" the desired cxxflags to the dependent Boost libraries?
Also: I recently tried using an alias to accomplish my goal. From the docs:
Another use of the alias rule is to change build properties. For example, if
you want to use link statically to the Boost Threads library, you can write
alias threads : /boost/thread//boost_thread : <link>static ;
However setting this up for boost_filesystem and rebuilding, say, path.cpp still
omits the properties I am trying to build with.
What am I missing?
