One should be able to test a sandbox library within its own sandbox
directory. I think it is a fault of the Boost Build system that it does
not automatically place the compiler include flag for the sandbox
library before the compiler include flag for a Boost distribution when
executing the compiler's command line and BOOST_ROOT ( or BOOST ) points
to a Boost distribution.
