Thanks for the answer. At first, I thought it was due to the way the
actions "junction", "mklink" and "hardlink" are defined in link.jam
(they remove the folders before creating the link), but apparently the
behaviour is the same on the unix platforms.
But when I see this:
I cannot help thinking this is due to something wrong in the recursion.
However I cannot figure out what the function involved are, and I have
some issues in understanding the syntax of jamfiles.
