Subject: [Boost-build] Targets never up-to-date problem

I have a problem with a really simple code, bjam keeps installing targets
even if they are up to date :

Here are the files i'm using :

boost-build ../source/trunk/libs/boost/tools/build/v2/kernel ;

use-project boost : ../source/trunk/libs/boost ;

# Project Configuration
        : build-dir build
        : requirements
        : source-location
install system : /boost/system :
install filesystem : /boost/filesystem :

lib test : main.cpp ;

void main(int argc, char** argv )


I'm using the actual boost trunk.

if you try to run bjam with these files it will always re-install
boost-system, and then relink test.dll

Can someone tell me if this behavior is normal and what do i have to do to
make it work properly ?
