Hi Franz,
when an action produces more than one target, bjam will use settings of only
one target when computing the build command, and which target will be used
depends on the order in which bjam traverses the dependency graph.
You fix is right; I will commit you fix as soon as Sourceforge CVS works

I must admit I have no idea why this problem manifests -- for the example
Bojan has sent the order of dependency graph traversal should be always the
same. However, I've decided it does not worth the time to find out how
exactly this bug is triggered.

Thanks for the fix!
