I am not very familiar with how the main Boost library Jamfile has
been written so I'm not going to be the one applying any patches to it.
However, maybe I can help with the Boost Build part of the problem if
you can prepare a smaller test-case demonstrating the problem.
I tried playing around with this to reproduce the problem but could
not get anything to fail in any of my little test cases. Unfortunately
there is no more time left for me to try and strip down the Boost
library build to something more reasonable that I could then debug.
