  For the record, I found the problem and
it should be fixed in develop. It would
only appear when adding a new library
or (especially) splitting an existing
library. The problem would not appear
in a clean build; only when an existing
b2 headers needed to be updated. Hence,
why the problem seemed to vanish.
