Well, you're right that it's busted. I just tried to fix it but I
don't have write permission on that file. John, could you take care of

Actually, if I look carefully at
/home/groups/b/bo/boost/jam-executables, I see that Rene and Toon have
also made that mistake. You have to set group write permission, or
everyone else is stuck with your files as they are.

Fortunately for you, Nicola, rebuilding the cygwin version is as easy

make CC=gcc

in the tools/build/jam_src directory.
