Oh right, I misread my subversion output. The unversioned files that are
popping up are because of the bootstrap script.

The svn:ignore property is missing for the 'tools/build/v2/engine/bin.ntx86'
and 'tools/build/v2/engine/bootstrap' dirs (and probably a couple others in
the same engine dir depending on your platform).

Also, project-config.jam and bootstrap.log in /trunk. Again, generated by
the bootstrap script.

I like unversioned files being displayed, because on my project there should
not be any, so if I notice one it means I either need to commit or ignore
it. Maybe it's just me being overly OCD, but it helps me avoid accidentally
failing to commit new files etc.
