Not directly.. Although distributed builds have been done in the past with
tools like distcc.

If so, what is the best way to accomplish this goal? Seems hard to find any

Not sure what the best way is.. But the one I know of is to write a wrapper
script for the toolset command that takes care of the distribution, i.e. an
equivalent to distcc. And then you configure the toolset but point it at.
For example user-config.jam:

using gcc : : distcc ;
