I hit two difficulties when building Boost from SVN-trunk. They are
related to trac ticket #1100, and I tried adding some comments to it, but
my changes yielded Internal Error "Submission rejected as potential spam".

Here's the issue and workarounds:

> svn info

/bin/sh: line 1: chdir: command not found
/bin/sh: line 2: /svn/boost/dist/bin/wave: No such file or directory

   chdir /svn/boost/libs/function_types/build
   /svn/boost/dist/bin/wave -S/svn/boost libs/function_types/build/preprocess_arity_loops.cpp -o

Jamfile</svn/boost/libs/function_types/build>.wave /svn/boost/libs/function_types/build/timestamps/arity_loops...

The file <boost>/libs/function_types/build/Jamfile.v2, contains the
offending 'chdir'. When 'chdir' is changed to 'cd', the build still fails
on line 2.

Things finally build correctly with a
> bjam --layout=system --with-wave -q
