I misread your symptoms. Sorry about that.

Building a native bjam under mingw, then using it, requires this:

cd BOOST_ROOT/tools/build/v2/engine/src
./ mingw
tools/build/v2/engine/src/bin.ntx86/bjam.exe toolset=gcc


Though I figured out how to do it, no one else really stands a chance.
I'll bring it up on the developer's list: either
needs to show it, or bootstrap needs to change.
