Yes, it looks like on that system (which is Linux) Windows-only
libraries bcrypt and advapi32 are being linked with Boost.Filesystem.
I'm not really sure why that happens, as I'm checking that the target
system is Windows when I'm adding those libraries:

I would appreciate if someone knowledgeable about Boost.Build could take
a look to tell what I'm doing wrong.

The two weird things about this problem are:

1. Travis CI on Linux passed.
2. The error log says that both bcrypt and advapi32 are being linked,
and the code in the Jamfile is selecting only one of those.

I'm going to try marking bcrypt and advapi32 libs explicit, just in case
it helps.
