On my machine, %TEMP% expands to C:\DOCUME~1\dave\LOCALS~1\Temp
%TEMP%\build seems like a convenient thing to point my --build-dir at,
but when I do that, as BB tries to execute its MkDir rule, the shell
complains that neither C:\DOCUME~1\dave\LOCALS~1\Temp nor
C:\DOCUME~1\dave\LOCALS~1 nor C:\DOCUME~1\dave nor C:\DOCUME~1 exist.
Is there something we can do to get bjam to play nice with the short
form of paths? Come to think of it, is there some way we could
exploit 8.3 paths to get around the line length issue?
