Subject: [boost] [modular-boost] /boost//headers error

I am seeing a strange discrepancy between building the headers target
from the command line vs including it as a dependency in another target.

In our own projects we 'use-project /boost : $(PATH_TO_BOOST) ;' and use
the headers target. But as a reproducible example, if I add
/boost//headers to tools/quickbook/src/Jamfile.v2
I get:

I tried to debug it, but alas my skills at boost-build seem to be
insufficient. It is interesting to note however that when looking at 'b2
-d5' output 'sequence.join library-name-headers .' seems to be invoked
when it fails, yet that does not occur when it succeeds.

If anyone has any ideas on how to get this working again, I would be
happy to look into this more.

I for one welcome our new git overlords.
