I understood that. What I really wanted to know was:
* Is the build result as expected for my "tools" set.
* Is there any automatic output built when running the build from the root
that I could:
1) Compare against the compiler status tables
2) Submit to any interested parties
* Is the issue with re-building jam and the advapi32 (and other import
libraries) directory well-known.
* Is there a workaround (of course there is, but what is it)
* Is there (or is there planned) any 'clean' Boost.Build option, that
removes all generated stuff (.obj,.pdb,.lib,.exe ...)
