On master for linux with "b2 release":

error: Name clash for
error: Tried to build the target twice, with property sets having
error: these incompatible properties:
error: - none
error: - <address-model>64 <architecture>x86
error: Please make sure to have consistent requirements for these
error: properties everywhere in your project, especially for install
error: targets.

I should have noticed the cross-compilation issue. But as long as host and
target have the same adress-model (32 in this case) it should work, though by
accident :-)

The new dependency on Boost.System paired with the design flaw of <address-
model> and <architecture> not having default values (yet) leads to this
