Thank you for the suggestion!
This indeed changed the behaviour, now the build stops after having done
the configuration steps, just before starting to compile.
In my stage directory I can find a config.log file with content:

...found 16 targets...
...updating 9 targets...
common.mkdir build\bb\boost
common.mkdir build\bb\boost\bin.v2
common.mkdir build\bb\boost\bin.v2\libs
common.mkdir build\bb\boost\bin.v2\libs\regex
common.mkdir build\bb\boost\bin.v2\libs\regex\build
common.mkdir build\bb\boost\bin.v2\libs\regex\build\gcc-mngw6-4.6.2
common.mkdir build\bb\boost\bin.v2\libs\regex\build\gcc-mngw6-4.6.2\dbg
CreateProcessA() Windows API failed: 2 - Das System kann die angegebene 
Datei nicht finden.
The last message is partly german, meaning that the "System cannot find 
the given file."
But no hint which file. Starting b2 with --verbose doesn't help either, 
nor does --debug-configuration.
The command line I am using to invoke b2:
 >b2 my_target gcc-4.6.2-mingw32
Subversion revision id is:  989
The Subversion message is from my Jamroot, a call to svnversion to read 
the svn number from my tree.
The very same runs without any issues with the 1.53 version that came 
with boost.
I am glad about any hints you can give me. Is there a document of 
changes I should look into? Are there any new environment variables 
beyond BOOST_BUILD_PATH I need to take of in the latest version?
