Subject: [boost] [git] boost/config/user.hpp not found when building

There seem to be a problem with copying of submodule headers when building
boost from git on Windows. I get a _lot_ of "error C1083: Cannot open
include file: 'boost/config/user.hpp': No such file or directory" when
attempting to build Boost with VS2012. Manual copying of user.hpp (as well
as other "missing" headers) does solve the problem, but this should not be

Steps to reproduce:
1: Create a clean Boost git working-copy with all submodules.
2: bootstrap.bat
3: b2 link=shared runtime-link=shared variant=debug toolset=msvc-11.0

Any ideas for how to avoid this problem?

Thanks in advance,
Fredrik Orderud
