I don't see that the library builds OK for cwpro8. Strangely, Beman's test
results are fine.

We always to "clean" builds, we delete everything, do fresh checkout from
CVS and rebuild everything except bjam.
The reasons for it are:
1. It seems to me that bjam doesn't seem to track all dependencies (i.e. the
dependencies on toolsets)
2. We wanted to make sure that what we are in complete sync with CVS.
