Subject: [Boost-build] bjam in 1.44 vs 1.39

We recently switched from boost 1.39 to boost 1.44. We use the bjam and
boost build packaged with the version of boost we use.

It seems that the bjam packaged with 1.44 exists with 0 even if there is a

...failed gcc.compile.c++ /home/foo/Foo.o... ...failed updating 1 target...
machine:/home/foo # echo $?

It stops early with the -q and prints out that it failed, it just exits 0.

With Version 3.1.17. OS=LINUX version that came with 1.39, I get an exit
status of 1, which is what I expect.
