It doesn't build with bjam --v2. Should it ? There is a jamfile.v2 in the
bcp directory. Is bjam version 2 and the Build System version 2 still works
in progress which end users should not use. I can't make out whether version
2 is completed and errors should be reported when it doesn't work or whether
I should stick with using version 1 and assume that version 2 will be ready
sometime in the future. I also find the version 2 docs and explanations less
than helpful. Any enlightenment on this situation would be welcome.
