Note that the final two mklink steps are _not_ performable as a standard
user, they require administrative privileges.

The only kind of link I seem to be able to create as a standard test
user on my machine is a file hardlink.

Keep this in mind for Ryppl and whatever processes that might be
proposed for Boost adoption, as anything that requires admin privileges
will be completely unfeasible for many users of the library, and quite
possibly for library contributors as well.
