Can you tell me the name of "bin...." directory created in "jam_src" when you
was building bjam, so that I can fix this?

Same question here. The Boost.Build test system expects that you've build bjam
in jam_src and tries to find the "bin" directory there. But for the systems
above, it does not know the right path.

Ok. Do you have "test-config.jam" in the "test" directory. Is you have this
file, it overrides "user-config.jam" which can explain why editing
user-config did not have any effect.

Okay. For a real quick test you can try building v2/example/hello. If that
fails, at least you can get the failed command line and figure out what's
wrong there.
