Up till now, I only bumped version number when doing V2 releases. The
motivation was that for releases, the check is really necessary, while for
persons who use CVS version, rebuilding jam after each CVS update is not a
problem. If we bump version after adding each builtin, the version number
will grow very quickly. Of course, other opinions are welcome.

Yea, at the moment even example/hello does not work ;-) Oops... seems like the
directory v2/build is expected to be called v2/core by bootstrap.jam... don't
remember if that was original intention... anyway, rename of a single
directory can be done later, if needed.

After tweaking bootstrap.jam and all tests pass.

Thanks! The new layout is much nicer. I'm gonna remove all V2 files in
tools/build a bit later.
