You don't need to build everything in order to test the kernel and its 
test applications. All you need to do it:
$ jam boot_floppy

Everything under this target should build without any errors.

Since it does work on Bochs 2.0.2 here, and also "ls -al" does work, I 
would guess there is still something wrong with your build, although I 
don't know what it could be.
I could send you a floppy image to test that with your equipment - if 
that would work, it's your build.
