I just downloaded the project to a fresh directory and everything worked,
but I think that's because I checked an MSVC bug workaround into boost a few
days ago which hasn't made it into a release yet. You can get the fix at:

That's just an artifact of my version control. When it goes into boost
distribution, I think that will go away.

It's hard to say what might be happening without a reproducible test case.
