1. Configure your toolset/sdk to create an iPhoneOS specific darwin
toolset version. You do this by adding something like this to your
user-config.jam or site-config.jam:

using darwin : 4.0.1~iphone
-arch arm
   : <striper>
   : <architecture>arm <target-os>iphone <macosx-version>iphone-2.0
using darwin : 4.0.1~iphonesim
   : <striper>
   : <architecture>x86 <target-os>iphone <macosx-version>iphonesim-2.0

Adjusting paths to where you installed the SDK of course.

2. Build by specifying the full variant to build that matches the setup.
For example:

   bjam toolset=darwin architecture=arm target-os=iphone

And for the simulator:

   bjam toolset=darwin architecture=x86 target-os=iphone

Note, I haven't made changes for the newer 2.1 or 2.2 versions so BBv2
doesn't recognize those version as options. I'll get to doing that soon,
though. Just been busy with console development :-\
