I beg to differ. It DOES

version 1.6 of Jamfile.v2 contains the line you say it shouldn't do
I checked it against the cvs repository and it's up to date
the line was added (according to annotate)
1.3 (vladimir 23-Oct-02): build-project libs/graph/build ;

it's still in the file
bison IS in the path
it complains: bison.simple: No such file or directory
bison.simple is in the same directory as bison.exe
my command for running bjamv2 is:
bjam --v2 >bjamv2.log

this is run from the same directory that I run:
bjam -sTOOLS=vc7.1 install >bjaminstall.log
