Thanks for the hint. I have tried it out with the Boost.Buildv2 that
ships with 1.33.0 but unfortunately there were some problems:

1) examples/echo doesn't build at all

2) boost toplevel doesn't build because of an issue in iostreams

3) boost/libs/signals builds only a single subvariant and I couldn't
   figure out how to build all the others

4) contrary to v1 when I build in a subproject (like signals) v2 seems
   to always complain about missing python, ICU etc.

Unless these are grave failures on my part (I've followed the
documentation on which seems to be a bit outdated) I will
presumably stay with v1 and more so because Rene Rivera provided me
the clue I needed to get going.
