I see the problem now. The reason is that Dave has fix a bug in Jam recently,
and I have not updated qt.jam: in contained a workaround for it. Please try
again, with up-to-date bjam and Boost.Build.

I've no problem changing suffix for headers that UIC generates. In fact, it's
specified on line 36 of qt.jam. However, I'm not sure what our policy should
be. Do we allow to customize all extensions? Or would it be better to say that
UIC generates *target* types CPP and H and use default extension for that
type. Or, should be allow the user to say: when generating headers, prefer the
"hpp" extension.
