I moved the defines to RSP files. But SOME defines are applied, so I
don't think the bug is inside the code I patched. It's more likely
that the bug is inside Jamfile.v2 for Boost.Python.

The rationale of putting all switches to response files was to enhance
debugging, not to make it worse.

Some switches were inside the rsp files, some switches were on command
lines. So I had to look in two different places to find the problem.
Now all switches are in a single place.

If we still want to use -d switch to trace the actual command lines, I
think it's a good idea to display the parameters for :E variable
modifier at higher debug levels.

What do you think?
