I don't know, but the dmc toolset is broken for the same reason. Actually
this seems to me to be a bad design decision: why would the compilers
include directory be present on the command line at all? If my compilers
environment has been modified to place some other directory first (for
example in vcvars32.bat) then why would bjam subvert that?
