oops. I figured it was an added feature and I'm not sure why I
experienced the problem now (I update my boost at least every week). So
I installed a fresh compile of jam and it works. I do have to add the
BOOST_ROOT command-line option to make it work whereas previously this
was not necessary ?
Anyway, I'll start to make precompiled jams for the unix platforms now.
