I'm with Justin on this one.
I have followed the instructions from David Abrahams very carefully
and for the first time Jam actually ran. (Thanks David! :-)
However, there are still problems...
Small sample of the problems:
     Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual C++ tools.
     D:\dev\lib\boost_1_25_1> jam.exe -sBOOST_ROOT=. -sTOOLS="msvc"
     don't know how to make bin
     don't know how to make build
     don't know how to make libboost_regex.lib
     don't know how to make msvc
     don't know how to make debug
     don't know how to make runtime-link-dynamic
    << snip >>
     ...skipped <status\regex_test\msvc\debug\runtime-link-dynamic>regex_test.CMD for lack of bin...
     ...skipped <status\regex_test\msvc\debug\runtime-link-dynamic>regex_test.exe for lack of
     ...skipped <status\regex_test\msvc\debug\runtime-link-dynamic>regex_test.test for lack of

In the end the only library that was created was libboost_threadmon.lib (and only the debug).
As an interim solution, binaries of boost (.lib and .DLL) would be very helpful at this point,
as I need to be tackling problems in my own project rather than boost build problems.
If anybody would be willing to supply those I would be grateful.

  Please see

  There you will find updated instructions and even a pre-built Win32 executable.

  The Boost CVS repository contains the latest build system sources,
  or you can retrieve them from the yahoogroups files area at:
  in case you need them.
