If I specify the --libdir directory directly the output does not go to
the correct directory path on the drive I specify but instead goes to
the correct directory path on the drive from which I am invoking b2
instead. In other words --libdir completely ignores the drive
specification I give it. This is an obvious bug in Boost build.
