Trunk @77720 should be stable. I'm actively
working on the build engine right now, so
bugs are possible. I always verify that

a) There are no regressions in the Boost.Build
   test suite on Linux or Windows.
b) Boost itself builds properly.

but sometimes problems still slip through.

I'd suggest using a single known-good version
of the trunk and switching to 1.50 when
it's released. (Probably May or June). I'll
try hard to make sure that all the current
fixes get into 1.50.

Looking through the history, the relevant
changeset is 75776. However, it looks like
this depends on several prior changes
and there were a few bug fixes later.
