After getting the latest from 'trunk', with the backed out fix to
libs/jamfile.v2, the tests for the Boost libraries now work correctly
without being rerun every time.

However I have moved my own non-Boost library into the 'trunk'
structure, using the new modular Boost structure and the symbolic link,
and with this library the tests are still always being rerun. The source
file dates are correct and not in the future. There is evidently some
other difference between this library and libraries already in Boost as
far as Boost Build is concerned but I do not know what it could be.

I will look at the run with the -d+12 option to try to see what is
causing the tests to always be run for my own non-Boost library.
