I think I *may* have a fix: it seems that if a target has both a <build>no
and a <dependency>some-target, then you get a Boost.Build error from
"some-target". Commenting out the <build>no option in
libs/serialization/build/Jamfile.v2 fixes things temporarily, but isn't much
of a fix: I think I have a better one, but it needs tidying up and testing!

HTH, John.
