I'm happy the cat is out of the bag. This seems very wrong to me, and the
fact that this thread exists, proves it. It seems to me that the
environment should be taken from environment set in the command shell from
which bjam is run at the first invokation, as that is the environment that
the user has created/selected. This gives maximum flexibility, while still
addressing the concerns relating to build-speed. This is AFAICS also the
approach that cmake takes, cmake has to be invoked from a vs prompt.

Have a good day,
