To see the actual command being invoked by jam add -d+2 to your

The problems I've had with compiling boost in a similar environment
(although using gnu ld) is that the gcc-tools.jam file includes the
stlport include path using the -isystem flag. I've never managed
to get this working, and since using -I seems to work, I've not
worried about why.
