What Windows? Without further ado in a dos-prompt on WinXP:
HOMEPATH=\Documents and Settings\Brian Riis
Windows defines these by itself. (At least it should). Of course it'll
not point into your C:\home directory, but using it should be "portable"
across Windows versions *without* setting any environment variables.
Your user-config.jam will have to go into C:\Documents and
Settings\<your login>\, of course.
