Oops, I was too quick posting - I applied those changes manually to the
msvc.jam in my local copy of BBv2 from RC_1_33_0 but they weren't enough be
themselves. I also had to add the relevant changes (MANIFEST +
RESOURCEFLAGS) to msvc.flags.

I also wondering why the regression tests for 1.33.1 were being able to run
successfully without this, but I guess that they are run straight from the
output directory (besides the fact that they are run using BBv1(?). I saw
the above failure after installing the .exes (using the install rule).

BTW, wouldn't it make sense to e.g. have the foo.exe.manifest files
installed along with the foo.exe if the manifest isn't embedded as a
resource? Possible to implement?

Thanks // Johan
