Hello Vincent,

BBv2 read your own user-config.jam from you home directory. How this works is
in the documentation. Seach boost_build_v2.html for site_config.jam and

I recall last month (or a couple of months back) the ALL_LOCATE_TARGET issue
was mentioned in this mailing list. I think the current BBv2 status is that
it doesn't support it directly. However this does not mean you cannot role
you own.

You can use the 'build-dir' parameter of the 'project' rule to override the
default build dir. If you need a global way to do this you could set an
variable and use this instead of specifying a literal path as the argument.

Two good places to set such a variable are in your user-config.jam or in your
boost-build.jam. The later is more powerful as it searched in the filesystem
heirarchically and can therefore be easily customised

I think this just mean you haven't yet defined any toolset. This should be
done in the user or site config.
