The problem here is that when use-project loads Jamfile at the specified
location, that Jamfiles tries to inherit properties from user-config.jam,
which is not loaded at this point.

The right solution would be to make use-project lazy -- so that it
does not immediately load referenced Jamfile. However, it's a bit of
work and might not happen in near future.
