Thanks for the URL -- I haven't seen that page! I was using the "nightly build" option at http://www.boost.org/tools/build/v2/ . LOL - As for stupid, short-sighted, etc., I'm captain of that ship, mate.

It could have started with ".:/usr/bin:". I don't understand the
author's expectation here.
The authors expectation, being me, is wrong/stupid/shortsighted :-)
Hence why John fixed the code:
You have the broken code. So what did you mean by "downloaded yesterday"?
