I've noticed your patch appears to be produced using git. If so, it should
be relatively painless for you to use git svn to track SVN HEAD of Boost.Build
and maintain local patches, using 'git svn rebase' from time to time. That's
what I use for some other SVN projects where I do significant development.
We sure can get you a SVN branch if that's more convenient.
