Hi Victor,

It's simply not possible. "--version" means "give me version of build system
used". It can only work if bjam can find the build system and it does
supports --version. V1 does not. It can be changes, but in general, running

bjam --version

from arbitrary place of filesystem cannot work.

No, not really. I believe your bjam version is out of date. As I've said in
previous email:

I don't think this statement is true.
