I recently started testing jam for using it apart from boost (for an
internal multi compiler project). After the following mail i got the CVS
snapshot of boost.build for further tests.

Here I go:
According to build_system.htm (from 2002-03-29) jam.exe should
understand environment variables JAMBASE / BOOST_ROOT /
BOOST_BUILD_PATH. I have installed jam.exe in c:\l\jam and the jamfiles
from cvs in c:\l\jam\tools\build. Then I tried the following settings:
/1/ set BOOST_ROOT=c:\l\jam
/2/ set BOOST_BUILD_PATH=c:\l\jam\tools\build
/3/ set BOOST_BUILD_PATH=c:\l\jam\tools\build\new
/4/ set JAMBASE=c:\l\jam\tools\build\new\build-system.jam
/5/ set JAMBASE=c:\l\jam\tools\build\build-base.jam
/6/ set JAMBASE=c:\l\jam\tools\build (with build-base.jam copied to jambase.jam)
Of this configurations only /1/ works, and this only after I have placed
boost-build.jam into c:\l\jam. All other settings let jam complain that
JAM_TOOLSET is not set.
Did I misunderstand something or is build_system.htm outdated?
