Having simplified this to:

   bjam --v2 msvc-7.1 install debug release

I tracked it down to Boost.Wave (not, as you would think, Boost.FileSystem)!

The workaround is to open the following files:


and comment out the line:

    <toolset-msvc:version>7.1:<rtti>off # workaround for compiler bug

in each. I am not checking that into Boost, as the line was there for a reason.

NOTE: Doing

   bjam msvc-7.1 install rtti=on rtti=off

does not fix the problem.

There are a few things I don't quite understand, but here is what I suspect
(Volodya -- I don't know enough about this to produce a fix):

[1] This problem isn't being hit by the regression tests because they are not
doing a:
   bjam install
(I have confirmed you don't need the "debug release" part).

[2] The <tag> rule -- used to calculate the names of the Boost DLLs -- is
being applied before the <rtti>off from Boost.Wave has been propagated
to Boost.FileSystem (hence the duplicate target with different properties).

[3] The install option is copying boost_filesystem-[tags].dll, whereas a
regular build isn't, which is invoking the <tag> rule and resulting in the
duplicate target error.
