Yes it will: the shell script will build a cygwin build of bjam which is
only really suitable for use with cygwin builds (because it will use the
cygwin shell to execute commands, and toolsets like vc71-tools.jam expect a
windows shell). If you want to rebuild jam each time you run, then you will
need to use the build.bat batch file rather than the shell script.
