As far as I know Jamfile.v2 is a hack in boost/boost-build.jam
implemented solely for Boost libraries to allow Boost to be built with
both versions before BBv2 becomes stable.

For general usage of Boost.Build v2 Jamroot and optional child
Jamfile(s) should be used. It seems you used Boost itself as a tutorial
which isn't right. Boost is a bad example to learn from. Use the
available documentation instead.
