There isn't any direct bjam support.

Closest thing you can have is to either fully convert your project to
one of the supported build systems (qmake, cmake, qbs, autotools,
"generic make") or to set up a "dummy" project for one of the supported
build systems, and replace the automatically generated build steps
by custom build steps calling bjam manually.

For qmake, that's often something like running "qmake -project"
in the top-level source directory to create a .pro file, and
removing the qmake build step after opening the .pro file.
