You can tell it to generate the object file directly by doing "bjam
foo.o" on Unix or "bjam foo.obj" on Windows (or whatever the extension
for object files is on your system). Assuming you have a foo.cpp, it
will build it. You'll get something like this:

notice: could not find main target foo.obj
notice: assuming it's a name of file to create
