Hi again,

I just found a strange behavior concerning the following solution to
my original question.

This solution works. However, if I call bjam without any variant, the
original debug variant is used and all my changes to the debug
variant, except for the additional defines, are ignored. Especially
the features "<threading>multi" and "<warnings-as-errors>on" are
ignored. (These are the ones I tested with.)
By the way, I am using "Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 12)" with "Boost.Jam 03.1.16".
