I had several issues when trying to build the new boost version. My
toolset is MSVC6SP5 and STLPort 4.0 with native IOStreams.

Do you use SGI iostreams provided by STLPort or native iostreams?

Try modifying the jam file. After replacing $(BOOST_ROOT)
with ../../.. the includes paths were set up ok.

But I had to add the header <string> to "exceptions.hpp", otherwise
the compilation of the constructors of the exceptions objects failed.
But this may be an issue with STLPort 4.0.
