I approached the problem differently and added this at the top of my

  : requirements

Now all the DLLs of libjpeg, libpng, etc. can be found when I run
either of these two:

b2.exe toolset=msvc-14.2 address-model=32 libs/gil/test/extension/io//simple
b2.exe toolset=msvc-14.2 address-model=64 libs/gil/test/extension/io//simple

Spectacular success of mine! ;)

Next, I'd like to make this work for request of both at the same time,
that is address-model=32,64 or address-model=64,32

Interestingly, both first target in the list succeeds and the second
fails with linking
errors due to mismatch of machine type of libraries and build target.
That is, unresolved external symbol errors are described as follows

- for address-model=32,64
  warning LNK4272: library machine type 'x86' conflicts with target
machine type 'x64'

- for address-model=64,32
  warning LNK4272: library machine type 'x64' conflicts with target
machine type 'x86'

For both address models, checks of libraries succeed with yes.

Is there any way to make the multi-model command work?
