The current prefered build for bjam is:

cd BOOST_ROOT\tools\build\jam_src

And if you want to create a distribution zip archive additionaly do this:

.\build.bat --- dist

This is mostly documented at:

At present no-one keeps them up to date. If you noticed we're trying to move
all bjam distributions to SourceForge.

I keep some of the builds that are in SourceForge up to date. But more help
from people with other platforms would be appreciated ;-)

Also, I don't know if Dave got around to changing docs to point to
SourceForge files downloads... cheking... nope doesn't look like it.
