Boost-Build :

I'm interested in using bjam's new (or newish, I don't know, I'm new to
jam itself) SHELL builtin rule.

I'm using bjam as jam (so without the BoostBuild functionality), and I
find that the jam v1 compatibility rules overwrite the SHELL builtin
with the Shell rule for dealing with shell scripts.

I'm able to access the builting if I use

jam -f someotherfile.jam

but then I loose all of the Jambase rules, which I'm not eager to do.

Is there any way to "undefine" a rule? Or is there a way to indicate
that I want a builtin, and not any local redefinition of the rule?

Any help would be appreciated.

Take care,
