I deleted all my regression folder and found that bjam isn't properly
building. I guess my previous iterations were using an old bjam.exe.
build.bat output

"char *p" is declared after the assertion which is illegal C90.

strings.c(241) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before

"char * const bar" is declared in the middle of the scope.

Patch attached. My bjam builder is the old MSVC 7.1, but I guess that
same problem happens at least with MSVC2012.
