I think yes. As stated in docs ("Initialization" section), Boost.Build first
looks for file boost-build.jam. For Boost, such file exists and it
immediately redirects to tools/build. Take a look

For example, remove "libs/thread/build/bin" and run "bjam --v2 -n". It will
print all the used command lines.
