boost bjam install respects umask

Reported by: gsauthof@… Owned by: Vladimir Prus
Milestone: Boost 1.38.0 Component: build
Version: Boost 1.37.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


Using bjam to install boost 1.37 the install procedure respects the current umask of the user.

This is not the expected behaviour. Other software install routines usually make sure to set the file modes explicitly (for example they use the unix program 'install').

Thus, if you have a umask like 0077 you have by default a boost installation which is only readable by yourself. Again, no other 'make install' or such command behaves like this.

I used this command line to install boost under Solaris 10: ./tools/jam/src/bin.solaris/bjam -sICU_PATH=/usr --user-config=user-config.jam --with-test --with-program_options address-model=64 -d3 --prefix=myprefix install
