Hi Jorge,

I'd like to confirm I successfully use your module config and
it does the job very well. Big Thanks!

I think it's a good base to extend and customize, so I'm going to use it
for my further experiments.
For now, I post it as config.jam file into my SVN playground:

I hope you don't mind, do you?
I added a few comments, so now when I put the config.jam into
$BOOST_BUILD_PATH/utils, bjam --help config prints nice message :-)
Yes, nothing serious, but I've just started exploring the world of BB2.

However, I think it would be better to put custom and project-specific
modules into location like <project>/bb.
How can I tell bjam to look into <project>/bb for modules?

BTW, do you have any plans to extend and publish your module somewhere?
