What toolset are you using. I believe that for multi-line actions, bjam will
always use .bat file.

What value of JAMSHELL do you want to use. Maybe, you can adjust the compiler
command passed to 'using' in order to get the same effect? Say, on Linux I
can get parallel builds with:

  using gcc : : "distcc g++" ;
