Did that, still doesn't work :-(
There must be some very simple thing missing, an environment variable
or something, I'm sure. Please have a look at the first error msg

When calling jam, BOOST_ROOT is set to c:\boost, and all error
messages say something like

   Cannot open include file: 'boost/python/detail/call_object.hpp'

But of course 'call_object.hpp' is at that relative position to
BOOST_ROOT. Same if I try to build the whole Boost lib from the
boost root directory.

The compiler complains about not being able to include files that
are exactly at the given position (in the error msg) relative to the
*current* dir. So it should be able to include them even without
setting an include path!

I can't believe nobody else who tries to build Boost on Windows has
this problem! Please let me know if you have an idea.
