The problem is that property sets created before these properties are
do not contain their default values, while property sets created
afterwards do.

These particular properties are declared in Jamfiles that are not loaded
some time in the middle of generating the targets, so strange things happen.
I consider this a bug in Boost.Build. I think that it should be fixed
by adding
the default values of new properties to existing property sets as needed.
