It looks like the problem is that 'is-rooted' in
'tools/build/src/util/path.jam' doesn't support windows paths, so
'path.root' in the same file is concatenating absolute paths, giving
'D:\tmp2\boost\D:\tmp2\boost\dist\bin'. But I can't check that as I'm
not set up on windows. If I'm right then is-rooted really needs to be
fixed, but can you try the attached patch? It assumes that BOOST_ROOT
is always absolute, which I think is the case.
