Then you'll be glad(?) to know that it also seems to be broken for win32
in addition to cygwin. When I bjam --v2 from the boost/docs directory,
this is what I get:

error: Unable to find file or target named
error: '/C:/boost/cvs/boost/boost/algorithm/string.hpp'
error: referred from project at
error: '../libs/algorithm/string/doc'

That path with the leading '/' seems broken to me. Anybody else seeing this?
