I'm having a problem with B2 in this release.

For many releases now, I have run a command such as:
b2 -j16 --build-type=complete toolset=msvc-10.0 address-model=64
architecture=x86 --prefix="./" --libdir=lib32-msvc-10.0
--includedir=temp_inc install

to get the windows builds of each toolset. For the install, I set the
prefix as the current directory, so that I'll get a lib{arch}-msvc-{ver}
directory for each toolset in there. However, with this 1.70 release, it
seems to ignore my prefix and put the headers in
libs/headers/build/temp_inc/boost-1_70/boost, instead of
temp_inc/boost-1_70/boost. For the libraries, it scattered them throughout
the build in directories such as libs/coroutine/build/lib32-msvc-10.0/.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this? Am I using the --prefix
--libdir and --inlcudedir correctly? Or at least not badly enough to
warrant this?
