Subject: [Boost-build] Built products not installed under prefix

I am trying to build different variants of Boost 1.55 under Windows
with Visual Studio 2010 compiler. Here are the steps I've followed on
DOS cmd shell:

1. Initialized the VC++ build environment:

vcvarsall.bat x86

2. Ran the bootstrap:

cd boost_1_55_0

3. Ran the build with the 'install' target, an option of using a
separate directory for intermediate products, a non-default layout of
tagged, and a custom directory for installation:

b2 install --build-dir=f:\DATA\code\boost\boost-build64
--prefix-dir=f:\DATA\code\boost\boost-libs64 --layout=tagged
variant=debug,release threading=multi link=shared runtime-link=shared

My bad I didn't redirect everything to a text file. My laptop crashed
30 minutes into the build. I recovered and reran the last command.

Everything completed but I expected the lib and include directories
under f:\DATA\code\boost\boost-libs64. Instead I see them under
C:\Boost. I discovered this by looking at the logs of the last few
operations that I could scroll to on the cmd shell.
