Subject: [Boost-build] Skip the 'run_simple' configuration checks?
From: Kuhl, Brian (brian.kuhl_at_[hidden])

When I run b2 for VxWorks cross compile I'd like a way to skip any Boost.Config Feature Check that uses the run-simple rule.
Since I'm cross compiling every executable; when they run they fault, and erroneously configure the build.

This would be the equivalent of --cross-compile with Automake.

Is there an existing mechanism?
If not, what would be acceptable way to enhance Boost.Build to add this capability?

(Also ..what's a quick hack to accomplish this, my attempts were not successful)
