Just to be clear, the following isn't really related to the quickbook
bug that I fixed.

Thanks for checking this, I think that most of the files you indicated
were fixed in trunk four months (revision 46445) but it was never
merged. Beman, is it okay to merge this? It's not vital, but it
shouldn't break anything. Although, I'm a little weary about changing
Jamfiles, as they seem to be to sensitive to line endings. I think the
only case which is important are the shell scripts, which must have
unix line-endings.

This isn't really worth fixing in the release, but I'll look into
fixing it in trunk, and updating the subversion instructions on the
