Thanks for your help, I think the problem has solved - in the end it was
actually to do with the set PATH/%PATH% problem rather than with the lib

when I tried to do the second command that dave suggested it failed because
there was a space in between -L and the lib path - to stop a typo creeping
in I just cut and pasted it so it fell over - but for a different reason
than the thingy.

I took the set path command out of the Borland-tools.jam file and it works
okay - the set command was causing it to exit the Borland-build-action
before it was getting to the link action bit.

Thanks both for you help, and sorry for being a stupid monkey.

I think you must put the library path immediately after the -L option, so
that in your command line you have:
-L"C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilder6\lib"
