Build process

The command line syntax in V2 is completely different. For example

bjam -sTOOLS=msvc -sBUILD=release some_target

now becomes:

bjam toolset=msvc variant=release some_target

or, using implicit features, just:

bjam msvc release some_target

See the reference for a complete description of the syntax.
