Oops. I had a user-config.jam in build/v2/test instead of build/v2.

Cygwin (at work) and Debian GNU/Linux on PowerPC (at home).

Sorry for your inconvenience. I looked at it and corrected test_system.html,
but forgot to convert also

I just found out that on my PowerBook I had neither a TMP environment variable
and that the output of `pwd` did not corresponde to the python os.getcwd,
when I had symbolic link from /usr/src/boost -> /mnt/<somepath>. So my
testcase failed miserably under these cicumstances.

Therefore I attach a better version of the patch and the test case here.

Thanks again for your help.
