Hi Lee,

to be honest, I don't know what's happening here. The actual name of the target (as reported by --debug-building)
appears to be karma_grammar_fail-p3, and running

        b2 karma_grammar_fail-p3

does build that target. I don't recall any logic that would add "-p3" - does anybody else know?
