Boost-Build :

I don't have the latest version of boost-build (looks like I imported it
from the May 15th nightly release), but I couldn't find a similar bug in
the tracker.

One of my co-workers ran into an interesting problem. He had a
directory named "new" in one of his source directories. Every time he
modified the "new" directory, it caused most (if not all) of the C++
files to be rebuilt. The reason is that it was looking at the timestamp
of the "new" directory (instead of the system "new" include, I believe)
and seeing that it was newer than the object files.

Is it possible/reasonable to exclude directories from dependency scanner
