Indeed. But even more unfortunate: `bjam --help` shows strictly nothing
for me. Or rather, it seems the option is ignored, so I get

$ bjam --help
...found 12 targets...

('bjam' is the tool's name on Fedora 25, coming from the boost-jam-1.60

Is the `--help` flag newer than 1.60 ? (In my boost repo, I can of
course reproduce that `b2 --help` reports all those options.)
