Works fine, but then:

>.\b2 headers

If tools/build is switched to "develop" (i.e. the svn trunk), the problem goes away.

Presumably there are two ways to handle this:

Option 1: Using svn, merge tools/build trunk to branches/release.

Option 2: Using git, merge tools/build develop to master, and update boost super-project to point to the updated tools/build master branch.

Who is planning to handle this? Steven?

Which option do you prefer?
