In case it isn't clear. This is a *BIG* regression from the behavior of
Boost.Build as seen in the Boost 1.33.x release. It means that a user doing:

   bjam install

Will *only* get the debug single threaded libraries built. It also means
that users who have toolset set ups that do not support that particular
build will fail to build, likely silently. That would be the case for
MinGW+STLport5 users at minimum.

NOTE: The same problem applies when bjam is run for testing!
