Well, there's no way to get that information
from Boost.Build. Sorry.

The build of Boost needs to be compatible with your project.
If you are using any flags that break ABI compatibility
(such as -D_GLIBCXX_DEBUG), then you need to build Boost
with those flags. If you're not doing anything special,
the default build settings should work. (Of course, if
you're only using header-only libraries, then there's
no need to build anything.)

In Christ,
