Occasionally I discovered I can say:
using msvc : all ;

No this one does not work. It complains about toolset:version beeing

I tried
bjam --v2 toolset=msvc-6.0

which finally did it.

BTW.: besides not having been able to understand the documentation
correctly (maybe others will have similar troubles starting up?), I
found that boost library version v2 Jamfiles do not yet compile the library.
Is this a known issue? Or am I trying something stupid?

What puzzles me is, that e.g. some builds are trying to invoke bison.
Is this really intended?
