I figured it out. I was trying to use project-config.jam in the
top-level directory of my boost installation -- and that file wasn't
being read. When I used project-config.jam in my /project/ directory (as
the name suggests), it started working.

Here's my problem. Boost.Build is my build tool of choice; I use it to
build multiple projects that are not a part of boost. I need somewhere
to put information about my computer's specific setup (which toolset,
the location of third-party libraries), that will be available to all
the builds. In the 1.55 days, I used a single user-config.jam for that
purpose. How can I achieve the same result now?
