Boost-Build :

Is there some documentation on how to modify Boost build to add new
command line options? I'd like to know where and how to add options
when using bjam v2 head. I want to make these command line arguments
available to the project Jamfiles and would prefer command line
arguments to requiring users to set environment variables. Something

bjam --v2 --builddir=/my/derived/files --materialdir=/my/material/

I've looked at what's done in the Boost distribution but from what I
can tell, it seems to require modifications to the Jambase, which I'd
rather avoid if possible. Any ideas?
