I can't reproduce this problem. If I put:

exe a : a.cpp : <toolset>msvc ;
exe a : b.cpp ;

into Jamfile, "a.cpp" is not looked for. If you want avoid building a binary
except on msvc, you can use:

exe a : a.cpp : <toolset>msvc ;
alias a ;

Without the second alternative, a.cpp will be compiled even when toolset is
not msvc.
