Perhaps I am missing something fundamental, but I just tried

bjam --v2 toolset=msvc

from the boost root directory and got:

Roland_at_SPEEDSNAIL:H:\Projects\boost\HEAD$ bjam --v2 toolset=msvc
warning: no toolsets are configured.
warning: you won't be able to build C++ programs.
warning: please consult the documentation.

H:\Projects\boost\HEAD\tools\build\v2/kernel/bootstrap.jam:132: in
boost-build from module
H:\Projects\boost\HEAD\boost-build.jam:12: in module scope from module

Am I correct with the assumption that this is not the expected behaviour?

Regards Roland
