Yes, thank you... What I'd like to know is if that's a viable option for
selecting which targets to build from within a GUI tool. That is, if a
jamfile for a given project already has, for example, threading options;
will specifying threading at the command line to bjam, create ONLY the what
was requested?

Rephrasing a little, will the options specified at the CL override or add to
those specified in the jamfile? And if it's an override, will that be enough
for me to specify build targets without parsing jam files?
