I succeeded in cloning the interval library and applying my patch
locally. But I was not successful in running the regression tests; bjam

link.jam: No such file or directory
..\..\..\..\Jamroot:154: in modules.load
ERROR: rule "link-directory" unknown in module
C:/build/boost_1_55_0/tools/build/v2/build\project.jam:311: in load-jamfile
C:/build/boost_1_55_0/tools/build/v2/build\project.jam:64: in load

I was hoping that I could really provide a test for what my patch fixes.
  By searching some forums I found out that this is probably due to the
process of moving Boost from SVN to Git, and I'm not sure whether or not
it makes sense that I fetch the most recent snapshot (from Git? or SVN?)
of Boost for the regression test run.

Or do you think that I should just make the pull request on just the
code change? (The fix is quite simple...)
