In short:

In long: now, 'use-project' loads the Jamfile at the specified
directory. So, loading C++ Boost's Jamroot causes Jamfiles for all libraries
to be loaded, and warning to be emitted. There are two possible solutions:

        - Modify those Jamfiles to only emit warning when targets
        are actually used.
        - Modify use-project to load Jamfile only when necessary

The latter change is what is currently planned.
