Subject: [Boost-build] bjam --boost=/path/to/boost

I had entered a suggestion in Trac that the --boost option be documented
only to have the suggestion closed with the comment:

"There is no such option for Boost.Build. It only works if you're using
boost-build.jam from the sandbox, or you have some other code to handle it."

Would somebody please explain to me how the bjam "--boost" option is not
an option since the documentation clearly states that options begin with
a double underscore. Also could someone explain to me how an option
depends on a jam file to handle it, else it is not an option. Thanks !
