You were having a different problem from Justin. In this case, I checked in
a bug in allyourbase.jam. Please get the latest copy from CVS and you will
find the problem has cleared up. Systematic use of Vladimir Prus' testing
framework should help to prevent such problems in the future.
Thanks for your patience,

Subject: Re: [boost] Re: A problem installing boost with jam on Windows
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 >>
<status\regex_test\msvc\debug\runtime-link-dynamic>regex_test.CMD for lack
<status\regex_test\msvc\debug\runtime-link-dynamic>regex_test.exe for lack
<status\regex_test\msvc\debug\runtime-link-dynamic>regex_test.test for lack
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
If anybody would be willing to supply those I would be grateful.
