One more thing that may invalidate questions you might be aiming to ask now.
You realise that /Ox is identical [1] to /O2, that is why you don't
see the warning
in case of this:

cl /nologo /EHsc /O2 /Ox test.cpp

However, you do see the warning in other cases, for example:

cl /nologo /EHsc /O1 /Ox test.cpp
cl : Command line warning D9025 : overriding '/O1' with '/Ox'

Thus, lack of warning in case of specifying /O2 /Ox
does NOT mean the options overriding mechanism does not work
or Boost.Build is broken.

Ot: now turns on optimization, favoring speed (also throws Oi Oy Ob2 GF)
O2: has exactly the same meaning as Ot
Ox: has exactly the same meaning as Ot
