Subject: [Boost-build] option in user-config.jam

I'm trying to set an option in user-config.jam:

  option prefix : /my/prefix ;

This yields the following error message:

  tools/build/v2/build/project.jam:1105: in option from module project-rules
  error: The 'option' rule may be used only in site-config or user-config

Am I doing it wrong? I also tried the syntax that can occur in project-config.jam:

  option.set prefix : /my/prefix ;

… but that seemed to have no effect.
