No problem.. Since I wrote the cw-tools.jam.. And use it daily I can
tell you where things need to change.

Most of them are going to be the same as CodeWarrior does a wonderful
job of sticking to consistent options across platforms. So as Aleksey
suggests try it out and see what breaks :-)

But the options that are different are those for platform specific
features. For example "-export dllexport", which is a Win32 only
feature. If you look in the cw-tools.jam you'll see a bunch of places
where code is conditioned on "if $(NT) ...", those are all the places
where I was sure the options are only Win32. There are four types of
settings that are covered by that condition:

        1. The "-export dllexport".
        2. Selecting the "UseDLLPrefix.h" for pre 9 versions.
        3. Selecting the runtime libraries to link for pre 8 versions.
        4. Path setup, through cwenv.bat.

I think the only one you have to worry about immediately is (4). If you
are lucky CW will automatically know all this information :-)
