Looks like things are even better that I though -- what you want is already
supported, though I forgot about it.

At startup, Boost.Build V2 looks for a configuration file 'test-config.jam'
in the directories given by BOOST_BUILD_PATH. If found, that file is
loaded, and files in HOME are completely ignored. So, you can create a
directory anywhere, put 'test-config.jam' there, and change
BOOST_BUILD_PATH before running the tests.

Does this look sane for you?
