Subject: [boost] [Build] Specify compiler on the command line

Still attempting to setup Boost.Build for Hana, I find myself unable to
specify the compiler to be used by `b2` on the command line. The system
compiler is then used by default, which does not work because I need to
test on recent compilers.

This can be handled by writing a project-config.jam file with the following
in it:

    import feature ;

    if ! clang in [ feature.values <toolset> ]
        using clang : : /path/to/clang ;

However, this is not very script-friendly, and I wonder whether there's a way
to specify it on the command-line instead.
