Subject: [Boost-build] bjam build issues in 1.47

This is somewhat related to Paul Bristow's recent issue. I don't know if
this is the correct venue for this sort of question; feel free to point
me elsewhere if it is not.

IAE, I downloaded the package because I wanted a clean
version of bjam to do some experimentation with. I followed the
installation instructions here:

(I did check the instructions in the package; they are the same.)

The first failure I had was that was not executable.
However, since I only wanted to build bjam I decided to use the 'If'
clause on that page and went into the tools/build/v2 directory. In that
directory was also not executable, and also had to have
dos2unix run on it before I could run it. Once I did that I found that
engine/ was also not executable, so could not
execute that. Once I fixed that generated a bjam which I
could install and run.
