No wonder. Installation docs say you should run the command from the root of
unpacked tarball. The "Initialization" section in the docs has
the details.

Same mistake here. You're running "bjam --version" from boost root. Naturally,
it invokes V1. You might try either running "bjam --v2 --version" from the
boost root, or "bjam --version" from tools/build/examples-v2
