As it turned out I was studying an old version of the bbv2
documentation. Thank you for having me pointed to the current one.

Altough departing from your initial suggestion I would kindly ask you to
have a look onto and comment the following attempt to solve the problem:

import feature ;
feature.feature platform : native pthread : ;

project boost/thread
     : source-location ../src
     : default-build <threading>multi

lib boost_thread_pthread
        : ## sources ##
        : ## requirements ##

lib boost_thread
        : ## sources ##
        : ## requirements ##
          <platform>native # native is default and may be omitted

This apparently does what I intended (altough I did not yet have tested
the resulting library). I am wondering whether this might have any
adverse side effects I am not aware of. E.g. will this work correctly
when I am referencing the lib from an external project?

Thank you for your patience,
