I've discovered that the 7z version of the archive compiles
fine; so the problem seems to be related to the .tar.gz.

I've tried to diff the two versions of
`tools/build/src/kernel/modules.jam` (the one from the .tar.gz and the
one from the .7z) but they seems to differ only for the newlines.

Casually I found a "workaround"; running `./b2 clear` between
`./` and `./b2` fixes the problem.

Does it make any sense for you?
