I'm currently having a lot of problems with the regex regression test
that appear to be caused by bjam not noticing when a dependent header has
changed (The problems do not appear if the tester does a clean rebuild each
For example if I cd into libs/regex/example, and
to bring that target up to date, and then:
then nothing gets rebuild (everything should be rebuilt!).
However as soon as I touch a source file:
Then the touched source files do at least get rebuilt.
It would really really help if this could get fixed: at present some of our
regression test reports are basically worthless - they may be either failing
or *passing* incorrectly for no reason except that bjam has just decided not
to rebuild them!
