I just needed to use semaphores on my multiprocessor system and
remarked that http://www.boost.org/tools/build/jam_src/index.html
talks about settin a variable "SEMAPHORE" on the target.
As this didn't work I consulted the source code and found that
you have to set a "JAM_SEMAPHORE" variable.
Please fix the documentation.
Thanks a lot for your efforts.
