Ok, the bug I've seen is fixed. Strange things: spend half of yesterday adding
printfs and today in the morning I've just went to the buggy code and fixed
it, without even thinking.

Anyway... I don't think behaviour you report has anything to do with the
bugfix --- the message is produced by 'make0' function in bjam, which decides
what to update, and which was not affected by my recent changes.

And I'm now not sure there's any bug there. Jam found 1193 targets and updates
25. Probably that's because there's only 25 buildable targets and all others
are headers? Maybe you've run bjam from a subdirectory, so it did not seen
all the targets in the project? In short, the output you quoted does not
indicate any bug yet. Maybe, if jam really failed to update some target, you
could provide more information?
