Subject: [Boost-build] [boost-build] Unable to use build-type=complete on linux
From: Darren Garvey (darren.garvey_at_[hidden])

The release branch won't compile on linux when "--build-type=complete" is
used because that option isn't compatible with "--layout=system", which is
now the default. I expected this command would work:

$ bjam --build-type=complete install

Can Boost.Build automatically use "--layout=versioned" (or tagged) in the
above case instead of giving this error?

The difference between versioned and tagged layouts isn't clear to me, so a
docs link in the error message would help.

Added a trac ticket for this: #3467
