Yes, that works.

It seems that BOOST_BUILD_PATH is not searched for this file, is there any
specific reason for this?

Now it's working, thank you very much for your patience.

So the procedure most regression runners will have to follow is:

1. Create a user-config.jam in their home directory, or wherever this file
is allowed to live.
2. Add customized toolsets to this file.
3. Use <toolset>-<version1>, <toolset>-<version2>, ... instead of using
<customized toolset 1>, <customized toolset 2>, ... when running the
regression tests.

I just started a boost regression run using bbv2, it will take some days to
complete. When it's finished I will do another run using bbv1 and then try
to compare the results. We'll see how this fares.
