I'm trying to fix the appveyor setup for Boost.GIL, where I need to create a

I'm sure I'm not the first one to attempt to do this (i.e., create a custom 
user-config.jam on appveyor). Can someone see what I'm doing wrong ?

  This looks like a permissions issue.  You can
either use project-config.jam (b2 finds it in the
current working directory or its parents) or
pass the config file explicitly on the command
line with --user-config=path/to/user-config.jam
Hmm, so I replaced `%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\user-config.jam` with just `config.jam`, and got the exact same error "the system cannot find the file specified". Not very helpfull... :-(
