It is only when zlib or bzip2 are built from sources that this jamfile
issue shows up. If I remember correctly, I think that in the past the
Rudbek Associates test system was using already-built LIB or DLL files
for zlib and bzip2. I believe that when Victor resurrected the test
system a month or so ago, it got configured to built zlib and bzip2 from
sources instead. Then these new regressions started showing up. That's
my theory at least...
