Not me, thats why I'm asking.

I've merged Boost.Build develop, as of 2f6ee88755153d0a9a669ae9e3a798212c42e218, to master.

These commits remain not merged:

        Aaron Boman (1):
              Preserve order of properties in PropertySet.

        Jurko (5):
              Fix a dependecy --> dependency comment typo.
              Fix error message typo - same named targets with different properties.
              Fix dependendency --> dependency comment typo.
              Fix comment typos.
              Return valid exit code from Windows batch scripts.

        Noel Belcourt (1):
              Block SIGCHLD during select.

        kjedruczyk (1):
              Fixed null ptr dereference in executable_path on solaris when getexecname fails.

For those, I either cannot judge their safety, or don't find them important enough
to warrant cherry-picking.

I'll be traveling until 28th, with not much of free time, so feel free to cherry-pick any of these,
if necessary.
