Thank you for that. This file is from the OS (Gentoo)-provided Boost.
I'm looking to use a segregated build independent of the OS-provided

According to
Boost.Build should only search teh following locations for
   - /etc
   - $HOME

$HOME is /home/nick, and I've not defined BOOST_BUILD_PATH so I assume
it's `pwd` which is /home/nick/temp2/dev/3rdParty/Boost/boost_1_61_0 in
my case. Is there some other reason it's picking up this file in this
location? Is there some way I can prevent it from doing so?
