Boost-Build :

I found the problem, and I've fixed it for my install. I am using the
old Perforce rules, but the bug turns out to be in fileunix.c.
ofileunix.c doesn't check to see if the library is in the BSD extended
format. The attached patch works on OSX 10.4, and checks defines to
ensure that it only triggers on BSD systems, but hasn't been tested
anywhere else.

If I can be of any assistance in fixing or testing this problem, just
let me know.

o object.o should have TEMPORARY flag on it to prevent that. I have
