I have a little inconvenient problem when trying to build and install
boost on windows using vc71.

I used the command command line >bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7"
Everything compiles nicely without errors or warnings. Excellent.

But I endup with libraries in different directories. I have to add by
hand by using the IDE option.. menu all the directories.
Is there a step or target that I could use to install all the libraries
in some specific directory ? I would then only have to add one directory
path to the vc7 IDE as for the include. There are many directories in
libs and only a few of them have a build directory. I have to scan all
of them to find which one has a library, etc.

As suggested in the installation insrtuctions I built also regex using
the specific make file. And this one has an install target. The effect
is to copy the libraires in the VC directory. It is better than nothing
but I would prefer that libaries are stored in a subdirectory of boost.

Beside I have also noticed that the sub directory of the build directory
containing the libraries is named bin-stage. Would this mean that the
build process is not complete ? For now I only use threads so I can live
with it. But since the building process seams so well organised, I
thought there might be a way to do that. Or maybe I just didn't look in
the right place.

Bien cordialement,
