Hmm, since I updated the trunk this morning I'm getting the next message
(on both Windows (MSVC) and MinGW):

$ bjam
c:/_svn/boost/trunk/tools/build/v2/util\path.jam:476: in path.makedirs
rule MAKEDIR unknown in module path.
c:/_svn/boost/trunk/tools/build/v2/build\configure.jam:190: in
c:/_svn/boost/trunk/tools/build/v2\build-system.jam:724: in load
c:\_svn\boost\trunk\tools\build\v2/kernel\modules.jam:283: in import
c:\_svn\boost\trunk\tools\build\v2\kernel\bootstrap.jam:142: in boost-build
c:\_svn\boost\trunk\boost-build.jam:17: in module scope

and this message on Linux:

/home/barend/svn/boost/trunk/tools/build/v2/build/configure.jam:192: in
rule FILE_OPEN unknown in module configure.
/home/barend/svn/boost/trunk/tools/build/v2/build-system.jam:724: in load
/home/barend/svn/boost/trunk/tools/build/v2/kernel/modules.jam:283: in
/home/barend/svn/boost/trunk/tools/build/v2/kernel/bootstrap.jam:142: in
/home/barend/svn/boost/trunk/boost-build.jam:17: in module scope

So actually I cannot run bjam at this moment.

Did I miss something?

Regards, Barend
