Subject: [Boost-build] using toolset vs toolset=

Dear Boost.Build community,

I have an issue when running b2 on Mac OS Sierra (10.12.6).

The project builds fine with command:
b2 toolset=clang sample

However, when I put
using clang ;
into ~/site-config.jam file
I'm getting following error:

WARNING: Unable to construct sample/sample of type EXE with these properties:
<asynch-exceptions>off <debug-symbols>on <exception-handling>on

WARNING: Considered these as possible generators:
error: no generators were found for type 'EXE'
error: and the requested properties
error: make sure you've configured the needed tools

--debug-generators did not provide insights to me yet.

Do you have an idea what causes the error and how to fix it?
