Changes since RC2:
* Relative paths for --prefix, --libdir, etc. are now bound relative
to the current working directory, instead of being relative to the Jamfile. Thanks to Tom Kent for the report, and Steven and Peter for the fixes.

Changes since RC1:
* The Jamfile for Boost.Predef has been updated to allow running the tests from /status. Thanks to mike.dev@gmx.de for the report, and to Rene for the fix.
