How does one specify a compiler version on the bjam command line ( not
in a jamfile rule ) ? Is this documented anywhere in Boost Build ?
Before you say that one never does that, consider the situation where I
have three different versions of gcc ( or msvc ) and I want to run some
jam file against the earliest one.
