I can confirm that with the CVS tree tagged `Version_1_32_0' I was able
to do:
andy_at_jet:/usr/local/boost$ bjam --v2 --version
Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 10)
Boost.Jam 03.01.10

andy_at_jet:/usr/local/boost$ cd tools/build/v2/
andy_at_jet:/usr/local/boost/tools/build/v2$ bjam --version
Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 10)
Boost.Jam 03.01.10

andy_at_jet:/usr/local/boost/tools/build/v2$ bjam -v
Boost.Jam Version 3.1.10. OS=LINUX.

The `bjam --version' seems to only work when BBv2 is enabled (which in
the directory tools/build/v2 it seems to be always enabled by default).
Also, `bjam -v' works in any directory, as long as bjam is in your path.
