Subject: [Boost-build] Library_status

Having trouble getting visibility just right for the serialization
library by following the online testing matrix, I resolved to fire up my
ancient xp machine with msvc 8.0 in order to run the serialization
library tests locally.

a) use git to clone boost to the laptop OK
b) use git to clone boost/regression into the appropriate place in the
modular-boost directory. OK
c) build regression/build b2 - OK
d) run b2 ... >b2.log - seemed to work OK
e) try to run process_jam_log got unexpected message:

process_jam_log [options ...] and a help message.

f) So I checked the index.html page under library status. Now I
realized it changed alot lately in that it runs b2 | process_jam_long
library_status. That is i combines the functionaly of b2,
process_jam_log and library_status into one (large?) program. Leaving
aside the question of the merit of this idea - I just soldered on an
invoked library_status to display the help message.

I get the same message I get above - that is:

process_jam_log [options ...] and a help message.

What do I have to do to make this work?
