>>What was the problem with the set command?

I'm not sure yet - I am trying to find, because it's all software that does
this, not just boost - but up until it hasn't been a problem (or even
noticeable) - when I find out I will let you now, although I'm getting vibes
that it is something in my path that's causing it, because SET
CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH% works just fine

The problem with the second of the two commands you asked me to was:

"C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilder6\bin\bcc32" -v -q -v -tWR -tWD -WM- -L
"C:\Program Files\Borland\CBuilder6\lib"

wouldn't work because there is a space between '-L "C:\Program
Files\Borland\CBuilder6\lib)' It instead of looking for a the lib dir, it
was looking for a c++ file in that path - this was because of a text
wrapping in the original mail I sent

Assuming this is a widespread problem (I don't think it is, as I've already
mentioned), perhaps taking the best course of action would be make it a
requirement, rather than setting in the file - I agree this is far from
ideal, but Borland, VS etc all update the paths themselves so they contain
the entries in the path statement. - but I don't fully understand the jam
process so perhaps I'm overlooking something.
