#2732: boost bjam install respects umask

 Using bjam to install boost 1.37 the install procedure respects the
 current umask of the user.

 This is not the expected behaviour. Other software install routines
 usually make sure to set the file modes explicitly (for example they use
 the unix program 'install').

 Thus, if you have a umask like 0077 you have by default a boost
 installation which is only readable by yourself. Again, no other 'make
 install' or such command behaves like this.

 I used this command line to install boost under Solaris 10:
 ./tools/jam/src/bin.solaris/bjam -sICU_PATH=/usr --user-config=user-
 config.jam --with-test --with-program_options address-model=64 -d3
 --prefix=myprefix install
