The "obvious" variation:

b2 toolset=msvc architecture=arm address-model=64

appears to work, though it doesn't, so far as I can tell, inject any
/arch= options to the compiler, so I guess you'd probably better make
sure that the arm64 cross compiler is in your path when invoking b2 (but
I might be wrong on that).

BTW the error message when specifying arm64 as the architecture is:

error: "arm64" is not a known value of feature <architecture>
error: legal values: "x86" "ia64" "sparc" "power" "mips1" "mips2"
"mips3" "mips4" "mips32" "mips32r2" "mips64" "parisc" "arm" "riscv"
"s390x" "combined" "combined-x86-power"

which sort of provides a clue I think ;)

HTH, John.
