Subject: [Boost-build] How to install with group/world with read/execute permissions
From: Avi Bahra (avibahra_at_[hidden])

Is there any way I can install on linux/UNIX so that
resulting executable has permission for read/execute.
I tried:
   local umask = [ SHELL "umask u=rwx,g=rx,o=rx" ] ;

In my Jamroot.jam
But this has no effect on the exe' that are built.

Currently I have to do :
    umask u=rwx,g=rx,o=rx
at the shell, before building/installing, which
obviously affects everything,I should be able to do this just
for install

I have not seen any references to permissions when
installing in the documentation, so I am wondering
what is recommended way.
