Sorry, I don't remember the exact situation such a long time after my
previous post, and I no longer have access to the computer where I had
those problems. It might have been a consequence of copying an old bjam
binary in the folder before discovering that bjam was replaced by b2. Is
the old binary replaced in this case? Is there a message somewhere when
we bootstrap?
