Building the Boost C++ Libraries.
Performing configuration checks
- symlinks supported : yes <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< looks promising!
And was successful, and works OK every time,
But I can't get it to work on another machine.
I've checked that the links.jam contains the new symlinks code.
I've tried on develop and master branches.
I've done b2 --reconfigure more than once.
Is it significant that it says cached? Do I have to empty the cache?
Any ideas what else I am doing wrong?
