   If there is a problem - I do not see it. What exact Boost Build
version are you using and what tree are you trying to build?

   I just tried it with the trun Boost Build and with the current Boost
trunk on Windows and Boost Build has no problems with this. It failed to
build the documentation but that is most likely due to mu doxygen
toolchain not being set up correctly.
