I still have the same problem as before on cygwin. I run ./
and then ./bjam --help and get this:

Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 12)
Boost.Jam 03.1.17

... and then bjam just hangs with the cpu pegged at 100%. I tried
ash.exe and rebaseall like someone suggested, but it hasn't helped. Can
anybody else reproduce this?

FWIW, a plain "./bjam" doesn't hang and seems to kick off a proper
build. Very odd.
