Boost-Build :

I am using jam that was compiled from the boost-jam-3.1.9 source code
on Cygwin (as well as Linux). In trying out the example for modules
in boost.jam document,, if I
type into a Jamfile:

module my_module
rule salute ( x ) { ECHO $(x), world ; }
rule greet ( ) { salute hello ; }
greet ;
my_module.salute goodbye ;

I find that it gives an error of:
hello, world
Jamfile:7: in module scope
rule my_module.salute unknown in module

If someone could point out to me the correct way of getting modules to
work, then I would appreciate it. I have tried going over thru the
mailing list archives but didn't seem to find anything in regards to
this boost-related enhancement to the original Jam.

Thanks for your help in advance.
