Ok, I figured it. The correct way of doing it was: add "using msvc : 6
;" to user-config as you suggested, and invoke bjam as "bjam msvc-6".
This way it works.

Trying to invoke build via "bjam" or "bjam msvc" sets setup variable
correctly, but build system never calls setup. So you end up with
bunch of "can't find cl.exe" errors.

Now I can even add

using msvc : 6 ;
using msvc : 7.1 ;

to user-config and compile either one via "bjam msvc-6" or "bjam
msvc-7.1". Awesome!

Thanks for your help!
