Ok, several things happened:
The log entry changed to "Command string for CreateProcessA():
'-ftemplate-depth-128 ..."
which I know from earlier experience as indicating an inability of
boost-build to detect my compiler.
In my user-config.jam it is defined as:

using gcc
     : 4.6.2
     : "C:/subsys/win32/mingw-4.6.2/bin/g++.exe"
     : <flavor>mingw32

And I request this compiler from the cmd line as:
b2 mytarget gcc-4.6.2-mingw32
which worked before, and still works for the 4.7.2 compiler which is
also in user-config.jam (altough it is the first compiler specified in
the file, the default compiler)

A second observation is, that I am not able any-more to use
toolset-add-requirements within the user-config.jam to add requirements
(well indeed only a specific one) to my compilers

using gcc
     : 4.7.2
     : "C:/subsys/win64/mingw64-4.7.2/bin/g++.exe"
     : <flavor>mingw64

Does not add architecture property (which my Jamroot depends on).

I hope you can help.

Thank you, Roland.
