I'm not using the above module at all. What do I need to do for jam not
to interpret (parts of) the command-line arguments (options, features,
targets, etc.) ? Can you resume conceptually how the above (i.e., the
existing Boost.Build logic) extracts features such as "toolchain=gcc"
from the command line such that jam.c doesn't wrongly interpret this as
the name of a target ?

Thanks. Is there a way to access that programmatically ?
