Comparing my working Linux regression to my Win32, it appears that the
hardlinks aren't being set up correctly. I see a symbolic link from
boost_root/boost/config -> ../libs/config/include/boost/config, but no
such linkage on the Win32 side. libs/config/include/boost/config
directory is populated correctly (on Win32 also).

Here's more output, having run with a clean slate. Note all the hardlink
creations, but I don't see boost/config in there anywhere.

Is it doing a simple copy on win32 instead of a true hardlink? Something
like SysInternals' junction?
