If it's only for your project... Look at how boost-root/boost-build.jam
handles the "--v2" option. But basically, in your projects'
boost-build.jam file load BBv2 directly:

## If you want to use Jamfile.v2 uncomment this..
# JAMFILE = [Jj]amfile.v2 ;
## If you want to use Jamfile or Jamfile.v2 do this one..
# JAMFILE = ([Jj]amfile)|([Jj]amfile.v2) ;
## Or if you want something else..
JAMFILE = build.jam ;

## Load BBv2..
boost-build $(BOOST_ROOT)/tools/build/v2 ;

Of course you'd either set BOOST_ROOT, or put it some other relative or
absolute path.
