Oh, if you look a few lines earlier in the code the problem is
obvious, it's assuming that the newline used in the jamfile is the
correct one to use:

If you set nl to '\r\n' in the NT block, and '\n' in the other block
it might work better I think Eric's patch works because with it the
windows newline is no longer at the end of a variable, so if what I
suggested isn't possible, it's probably fine. I'll test it tonight if
