Yea you could do:
local GXX ?= QCC ;
local GCC ?= qcc ;
extends-toolset gcc ;
That way it would use whatever the user has configured as the default
version and target.

No. If you did that the action would never get used as it's called by
the "gcc-C++-action" from the "C++-action" rule in gcc-tools.jam.

a. Is it possible to use "-Wc,$(CFLAGS)", and also with CXXFLAGS, in the
action to prefix all the options?
b. If not, you can do any scanning manipulations of the options if you
override the "Cc-action" and "C++-action" rules, in which case you would
want to use "qcc-*-action" actions. For example, in qcc-tools.jam:
_ on $(<) = " " ;
CFLAGS on $(<) = [ on $(<) return -Wc,$(CFLAGS) ] ;
CXXFLAGS on $(<) = [ on $(<) return -Wc,$(CXXFLAGS) ] ;
qcc-C++-action $(<) : $(>) ;
And of course you would do more complicated manipulations than just
prepending the "-Wc," as above. Like looping over the flags, using

Already answered by Robert. But you could also add it unconditionally:
flags qcc CXXFLAGS : -Wno-non-virtual-dtor ;

Just add it to the flags unconditionally:
flags qcc FINDLIBS : m ;

It's also in the gcc-tools.jam, at the bottom as "rule Archive-action"
and "actions ... gcc-Archive-action".

They seem reasonable so far. I suspect that after you move as option
into being set with the "flags" rule you'll end up not having to
override the gcc actions. But I just noticed that there is one change
that needs to get done to gcc-tools.jam to help with that, moving the
-Wall out of the actions.

I think at this point it's safe to so say that the copyright should be
