Subject: [Boost-testing] Possible misconfiguration for test runner Debian-Sid.

   Looking at Boost Build test results from the Debian-Sid test runner
(reported as run based on revision 78909, on Tue, 12 Jun 2012 at
12:42:26 +0000) I see something mysterious:

   The only failing Boost Build test there is startup_v2 and in its
output we have the following:
> /usr/share/boost-build/build/project.jam:266: unbalanced parentheses
> warning: mismatched versions of Boost.Build engine and core
> warning: Boost.Build engine (bjam) is 2011.12.00
> warning: Boost.Build core (at /usr/share/boost-build) is 2011.04-svn

   The first thing is that the tests seem to be run using an outdated
bjam executable. Could someone administering this test runner check this
out and make sure it is configured with bjam built from the latest trunk
sources? Just go to the tools/build/v2/engine folder, run the
script there and the executables should get created in some
tools/build/v2/engine/bin* folder.

   The second thing is that the output indicates there is an error in
line 266 of /usr/share/boost-build/build/project.jam. Supposed revision
for this file is 78909 when in fact that same error has been corrected
in revision 75734. Could the administrator for this test runner check to
make sure this file is actually up to date and the line in question
looks like this:
> : Attempted to find it with pattern '$(JAMFILE:J=" ")'.

   If it does look like that, then we have something to research in
Boost Build, but if it does not then there is something misconfigured at
this test runner site and something else is getting tested there instead
of trunk/HEAD.

   Many thanks.
