Yes, I think so. Top-level Jamfile.v2 should have a target called
'build-all'. The type of the target should be "boost-build-all".
The generator for the "boost-build-all" type should contain the logic to
decide which variants to build. For gcc, it will discard building
of runtime-link=static. I haven't worked this approach to every detail, and
I don't have access to V2 source code at the moment,
but it should work.

You mean, the problem of "building all variants". I'm not sure where you got
this impression from, given that I've agreed this problem should be solved.
