Boost-Build :

I am having some problems with command line handling in v2.

1) the order of the argument seems to matter: when I do "bjam
toolset=gcc -a" it does not do rebuild while "bjam -a toolset=gcc" does.
Also appending -d switches at the end of a working command line does not
have the desired effect (like the -a)

2) some features seem to be ignored on the command line while they work
in the Jamfile: "bjam cxxflags=-m32 linkflags=-m32" does not work while
putting <cxxflags>-m32 and <linkflags>-m32 to the top level project
requirements does.

PS. This is on x86-64 linux but the problems mentioned in 1) are on
win32 too.
