On Windows I checked out 'develop' at the modular-boost level and
'develop' at the Boost Build level. Then I re-ran .\bootstrap, deleted
my current boost sub-directory, then re-ran .\b2 headers. The result is
still hardlinks for individual files under the boost subdirectory. Did I
miss something ?

If I try 'mklink mylink bootstarp.log' I am successful so I definitely
have rights to creating a symbolic file link.
