Ugh. Right. The reason why I initially separated .MT into two variables
is because cmd.exe sometimes decided to exit with an error when running
if exist ... (
in case .MT expanded into multiple lines.
My attempt at resolving this was to do:
before the 'if', and make sure that $(.MT) is a one-liner. This seems to
work but is quite ugly (and I broke cygwin in the process). However,
Jurko suggested a better way to do this. The following always succeeds:
if not exist ... goto :skip
With this I can once again use multi-line .MT, which will undo the
introduced cygwin bjam issue as well.
I'll update the pull request as soon as I verify that boost builds
correctly in all variants, with both native and cygwin bjam, in hope to
avoid any additional 'brown paper bag' bug fixes.
