Summary: problem building on linux

Initial Comment:
I tried to build boost under my own user and in a tree
that I own.
I used :
 bjam "sTOOLS=gcc"
-prefix=/nfs/us13/sverker/c++/boost/install/ install
First it said #skipping phyton..." which is ok with me.
Then I get :
don't know how to make sTOOLS=gcc
don't know how to make
...found 10593 targets...
...updating 3329 targets...
...can't find 2 targets...

Then I get many complaints that it cannot write in

And finaly :
...failed updating 111 targets...
...skipped 3218 targets...
...updated 851 targets...

/nfs/us13/sverker/c++/boost/install/ is empty.

Do I always have ro run under root? Why do I get these
two "dont know how to ..."?
