I agree up to a point: but for bbv2 as a build system that claims to operate
independently of Boost, it should not be "configuring" Boost lib's unless
you're actually going to be building them. Currently every Boost lib that
has a Jamfile gets parsed regardless of what you're building!
Also sounding like a broken record yours, John.
