Looks good building (Visual Studio 10-14.1) with `--prefix=..... install`, I get bzip2 and zlib binaries. I still don't get the bzip2 and zlib binaries when using `stage`.

Compile means that the b2 command completed without errors
Link means that visual studio was able to link a sample executable to a library (libboost_thread-vcXXX-mt[-gd]-1_XX.lib) generated
Execute means that the linked program executed without errors.

A new release candidates for the first 1.70.0 beta release are now available at:

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.

The release notes are not yet available.

As always, the release managers would appreciate it if you download
the candidate of your choice and give building it a try. Please report
both success and failure, and anything else that is noteworthy.
