By the way, the apparent reason I copied it is because the version of I have installed (which is 1.55.0, on Fedora 21) doesn't
contain any boost.jam file. It seems it was added later.
So I'll keep the file in my local tree, without checking it in, hoping
that once I upgrade my system to a later version of boost, the problem
will be solved.
