That's an interesting suggestion, but it seems unlikely as I use unix
line endings for all files. This seemed to work when compiling bjam
with msvc, and when compiling other files with gcc. Any chance that
you could tell me what the value of l->string is on expand.c line 752
under the cygwin-supplied gcc 3.4.4 in the case where you are
successfully building? I think that piece of knowledge (or other
knowledge about what expand.c is trying to do) would be a good lead.
