If you are using the latest CVS version of BBv2, you can do the following:

   bjam release ... warnings=off

or <warnings>off in the exe/lib targets. I supplied a patch to BBv2 to add
support for <warnings> and <warnings-as-errors> features :). It doesn't
support selective warning disabling because it is not feasible to cover all
compilers in a uniform way. At the moment only msvc, gcc, cw and borland are
supported in terms of supporting the new warnings feature. If anyone knows
the compiler options for
   warnings=all on off
   warnings-as-errors=off on
let me know and I'll add support for the feature for that toolset.

I would like to see the number of warnings on the maximum level set for a
compiler to be as few as possible, but understand as other people have said,
that it can sometimes not be very pretty and is in general not feasible (for
all compilers).
