When I try to build Boost using --v2 switch, I see the following message:

error: Could not find a Jamfile in directory '/d:/Home/lib/pkg/minicomet'.
error: Attempted to find it with pattern '[Bb]uild.jam [Jj]amfile.v2'.

d:/Home/lib/pkg/minicomet contains a Jamfile, and not a Build.jam or a
Jamfile.v2. I don't use BBv1 in my own projects at all.
d:/Home/lib/pkg is referenced from site-config.jam using a
"use-project" rule.

I deleted boost-build.jam from Boost root to fix this behaviour. Now
both D:\Home\libsrc\boost_cvs\ and d:/Home/lib/pkg/minicomet use the
same boost-build.jam located in d:/Home, and Boost uses BBv2 by

I want to build Boost and my own projects using BBv2, and I don't want
to have multiple instances of BBv2 installed. What do you think? Are
there any better solutions to this problem?
