Boost :

The recent update to Boost.Filesystem has broken bcp in a way I'm not sure
how to fix. The problem is that while scanning for header dependencies it
comes across some platform dependent names ( :sys:stat.h ) and then checks
for the existence of that name in various places such as
<tools/build/jam_src/:sys:stat.h>. Obviously such checks should fail, but
rather than just saying "no the file doesn't exist" the function exists is
throwing an exception. IMO there's no real need for an exception in this
case is there?

Many thanks,
