Building the Boost.Build binaries with the default system compiler
should be fine.
What you want to do is to invoke the actual building with a different toolset.
This is what you want to do:
$ cd boost_1_47_0
$ ./ --prefix=/path/to/your/boost/installation
$ ./b2 toolset=clang install

these set of commands will build the b2 with gcc, but the libraries
itself with clang.
