Subject: [Boost-build] use-project for system and not threads

My project uses the libraries boost_system and boost_thread. After some
experimentation, I found that the following Jamfile (greatly simplified)
correctly built my executable with the two libraries:
use-project /boost/system : boost/libs/system/build ;
: [ glob src/*.cpp ]
I found that the "use-project" statement was necessary for boost_system
but not boost_thread. I spent an hour or two looking through the
various Jamfiles, but was unable to figure out why use-project was
necessary for boost_system but not boost_thread.
I'm curious why this would be. Does anyone know why use-project is
necessary for boost_system but not boost_thread?
