OK, -DNDEBUG appeared on the command lines. Thanks.

I'm testing now. The initial phase seems very slow - apparently
optimization is more important than I would have thought. But at least we
stand a chance of finding the pesky bug that has been a bother for a long

It is probably worth noting that V1 is performing quite well, and has been
for quite a while now. Overall, Boost.Build for regression testing is now a
great success story IMO.
