Subject: [Boost-build] Way to build boost component from a GitHub repo?

I have been making changes to date_time which I cloned from GitHub. Now I want to build and run the test files included in that repository. How can I go about building and running these tests making use of the boost build mechanism?

In the boost docs, I noticed bjam and b2, which appear to work off of .jam files. However, the date_time repository seems to be using Jamfile.v2 files, which I haven’t found any reference to.

I do have the boost_1_64_0 source distribute and run the bootstrap so I have bjam and b2.
