Agggh, yes. This is due to the fact that we updated the jam executable on
the website after FAIL_EXPECTED was removed in the CVS... So the executable
you have is compatible with the current CVS state but not with the 1.27.0
release. We'll have that fixed in a week at most.

In the meantime you can do one of the following:

1. Use the current CVS state of boost (recommended, though you might need
step 2 as well)
2. Rebuild your jam from the sources in $(BOOST_ROOT)/tools/build/jam_src by
invoking make there.

Sorry for the rough start,
