Building boost using different calling conventions

Hi all, I need the boost libraries built using the stdcall convention, as opposed to the cdecl convention I believe the pre-compiled libraries are built on. I have been doing so using Boost.Build using the CXXFLAGS=\Gz option. Unfortunately, it seems that the library naming doesn't cater for this variation (unlike release/debug, 32/64, etc.), just as it is not identified in config/auto_link.hpp. Is there a reason behind that, or am I missing something? It's a long shot, but should I assume this is not something considered for addition? Any guidance on how best to build, name, identify and link the boost libraries using a different calling convention than cdecl would much appreciated.
