Subject: [Boost-build] jam0 segmentation fault
From: Zachary Lund (admin_at_[hidden])

I've attempted to include Boost.Build in my project outside of boost.
I've always found that the environment variable "LOCATE_TARGET" appears
to control where the generated bjam binary goes. Unfortunately, when I
provide it an absolute path to the location I need it to go into, I get
a segmentation fault.

I've not tested this much but the test case is to simply call
absolute path to a directory. If you execute with "bash -x" you'll
probably get something like:

+ ./bootstrap/jam0 -f build.jam --toolset=gcc --toolset-root= clean
./ line 13: 7610 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $@

I'm currently converting the absolute path to a relative as a
(inconvenient) work-around but thought this was noteworthy.
