   bjam --toolset=toolset1,toolset2
   bjam toolset=toolset1,toolset2
   bjam toolset=toolset1 toolset=toolset2

Any of the above is supposed to work even if these toolsets are not
configured in your xxx-config.jam

   bjam toolset1 toolset2

is supposed to work as long as toolset1 and toolset2 are configured in
xxx-config.jam, by dint of <toolset> being an implicit feature.
