Boost-Build :

Is it one of our goals that the new Boost.Jam executable work for building
I had changed things so that it looks in BOOST_ROOT for boost-build.jam,
but of course 1.27.0 only has a boost-build.jam in BOOST_ROOT/tools/build.
Now that we have separated the name "bootstrap.jam" from "boost-build.jam",
it makes a lot more sense than it used to to have boost-build.jam in

So, we need to decide what to do about this. I'm going to make the change
to the Jambase in CVS of the release candidate branch. Just in case Toon
and Vladimir decide they can afford to rebuild everything, I don't want to
slow them down. The alternative, of course, is to add instructions which
tell users to add a boost-build.jam at the root of older installations
before building. I really dislike that idea, though.
