Well, this is part of BGL build, and it does not use Boost.Build. I am not
sure why --- BGL has some Jamfile for Boost.Build V1, but I don't know if it
works. As it is, seems like Debian package maintainer decided to use
Makefile. The changes you made to 'gcc-tool.jam' have no effect on it.

If you really need Boost built with 3.0, including BGL, you'd have to edit the
Makefile, (or use Boost.Build V2 ;-) )
