BTW you don't have to put this in your .profile, you can also specify 
them on the command line, or call jam like this:

Of course, you can also put that line in a script if you're a lazy 
typer :)

Sure, BeIDE is a bit faster, but since Ingo made this stat cache server

I was referring to the arguments you pass on to the configure script, 
or what TARGET_PLATFORM says in build/BuildScript afterwards (you can 
override this with every jam invokation like above, too).
