No, it's probably this part of Jamroot:

if [ path.exists $(BOOST_ROOT)/tools/inspect ]
    use-project /boost/tools/inspect : tools/inspect/build ;

tools/inspect does exist as an empty directory in a freshly cloned
superproject. This should probably be

if [ path.exists $(BOOST_ROOT)/tools/inspect/build ]
