It looks like Jamfile.v2 had "python2.2" parts if directory names not so long
ago, and then Dave accidentally comitted a version which works for Windows,
had no "python2.2" parts, and does not work for Linux.

Definitely. I think I'll refrain from comitting your patch right now, since
this will break Windows again, and will file an issue. Okay, it's now

Hopefully, it will be addressed in near future. Maybe, you can try to use your
locally modified version of Jamfile.v2 while this issue is pending?

Ah.. that's good to know.
