OK, I think I understand now. You changed the BOOST_BUILD_PATH, or the
boost-build.jam to use the current BBv2 to build with the Jamfile.v2
files that come with Boost 1.33.1.

Well I'm not fond of adding the add-variant-and-compiler back because it
means some code duplication that is prone to errors. Would it be
possible for you to replace the Jamfile.v2 from 1.33.1 with the one from
HEAD (and adjusting the version number)? -- Or the one from the 1.34 branch.
