Hi !

I've got some comments/bug reports on V2 configuration.

file "bbv2.advanced.html#bbv2.advanced.configuration"
states that either "user-config.jam" from $HOME or BOOST_BUILD_PATH is
The overview table which lists the searched locations is "hidden" on
file "bbv2.reference.html#bbv2.reference.general"
I think the overview table should be moved to the configuration area.

I've tried to configure V2 on another Win32 machine today and it seems
that the stated locations _are_ _not_ searched on Win32.
I've verified my running V2 setup and found that I've configured my
toolsets in the project's "project-root.jam". When I try to use the
specified locations nothing works anymore.
Can anybody with Win32 confirm this ?

And it seems that V2 "ignores" project-root.jam on Win32 and reads
Jamfiles above it. I think I can construct a test case for this when
