Boost-Build :

I've included a simple project that demonstrates a bug within bjam with
header dependencies. I not sure if this would happen on stock Jam 2.5, since
it looks like their make.c is completely different.

To demonstrate:

build foo with jam (not using boost-build, but using boost jam)
touch c.h
build again

You will notice the second time only b.cpp gets recompiled when both a.cpp
and b.cpp should

If you reverse the order of a.cpp and b.cpp in the Jamfile, then everything

I think the problem is with make.c ~line 530

The problem is something related to t->htime, t->hfate, and t->hleaf not
getting updated in the header recursion loop. This causes jam to think a.h
is stable when it really isn't. I don't have time to delve into this deeper,
but hopefully the repro case should be enough.
