   Yes, there was a fix related to this in boostcpp.jam (revision.

   I think that was the intended behaviour all along (to have both
versioned and unversioned library variants built when the
--layout=versioned is requested) but there were some typos in code that
were silently causing the unversioned variants not to be built as expected.


   If this is something that should no be done - it is easy to disable
again, but I guess thats for the release manager to say - what he wants
the Boost library build to do.

   Hope this helps.
