Yep - it was me being dumb - I'd managed to lose PATH update that put
the freshly built bjam on the path, so I was picking up the system one.

The tests are now running - I'll check over the results and post if
there are any unexpected failures, but that isn't going to be anytime
soon :-)

There are a couple of minor updates that should be put in (probably for
1.42) regarding the documentation for building and running the tests in
* the wrong path for library_test and library_test_all
* mangled HTML in the formatted pages:
  * ../bin.v2/libs/test/<library%gt;/...
  * ../libs/%lt;library%gt;/example
* the "preliminaries" suggest that the tools are built by just invoking
  bjam in the tools/regression/build directory: this only builds
  process_jam_log. It didn't build library_status (had to explicitly
  build it).

Apologies for the misleading error report!
