   I do believe this to be a bug, but I like for someone else (Volodya?
Steven?) to comment before actually working on the fix as neither of us
is well versed is this part of Boost Build's design and we could be
missing something here...

   And if it is a bug, and it bugs someone (which it obviously does ;-))
- it will get fixed. :-)
