A weak ago I reported success in building and running Boost.Threads and
program_options library (built with bjam --v2) on my HP2215 handheld.
It's not exactly ARM9 but it's still arm architecture (armv5tel according
to uname, XScale-PXA255 rev 6 (v5l) according to /proc/cpuinfo).
The system run Linux, gcc 3.3.4 toolchain was used for building.
Everything was compiled and executed like a charm.

AFAIK, there is no cross compilation support in Boost.Build but it was easy
to set arm-linux-gcc compiler in user-config.jam.

Try searching for "arm" in jamboost mailing list
