Aha. Notice that scanning "D:\Local_Git\Boost_1_54_0\" doesn't
include "D:\Local_Git\Boost_1_54_0\." This is the source of
the problem. (The same thing applies to "D:\.") Current
Boost.Build assumes that "." always exists. Can you file
a ticket at I should be able to
reproduce the problem now.

I don't think so.
