This bit me tonight. The root cause is a missing target. I've modified
process_jam_log.cpp in CVS to treat this as a warning rather than an error.

Why did it happen in the first place? bjam's --dump-tests output looks like
this (with the line before and after the culprit):

...(RUN) "ios_state_unit_test" : "libs\io\test\ios_state_unit_test.cpp"
...(RUN) "ia1" :
...(RUN) "iterator_traits_test" : "libs\utility\iterator_traits_test.cpp"

("..." actually says "boost-test". I shortened it to fit on one line.)

Then later:

    don't know how to make reverse_iterator.cpp

Further along, this set of messages appears for each compiler:

...skipped <ia1.test\borland\debug>reverse_iterator.obj for lack of
...skipped <ia1.test\borland\debug>ia1.CMD for lack of
...skipped <ia1.test\borland\debug>ia1.exe for lack of

The strange thing is there is no Jamfile anywhere in RC_1_31_0 which
contains "reverse_iterator.cpp". I'm going to bed; I must be missing
something obvious. Dave?
