given that we have a build system, it would be nice if things that needed
being rebuild got rebuilt automatically, like the rest of boost.

I have a scheduled task that runs daily at 0300 my time which does (among
other things)
cd to my boost source location then:

cvs -z9 update -A -P -d >> update.log
bjam -sTOOLS=vc7.1 install >bjaminstall.log
cd status
bjam -sTOOLS=vc7.1 >status.log

I try to check the output of the logs daily.
if this does NOT build the new jam, shouldn't it?

I also try
bjam --v2
in both directories

if this is insufficient to rebuild bjam, what commands DO I need to add to
my daily testing?
