A slightly better way is to put

using msvc ;

into your user-config.jam. You'll get a warning that msvc in not found in
path, but everything will work okay.

There were some talks about adding a way to say: "I'd like to use this feature
in my Jamfiles, no matter if it's declared already or not". But nobody
implemented the suggestion yet.
