Not for me. Here is what I get:
warning: Python location is not configured
warning: the Boost.Python library won't be built
Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(and if you don't know what ICU is then you probably don't need it).
Jamfile.v2:239: in Jamfile</C:/BoostHead>.tag
rule stage.add-variant-and-compiler unknown in module
.. a bunch of other stuff
its not clear to me how something like that could work. How does the system
know on what path my compiler is installed?
suggests to me that the following syntax should work
bjam msvc release some_target
which I take to mean that the following should work
bjam --v2 msvc release some_target
and which would lead me to expect that the following should work
bjam --v2 msvc
which doesn't work.
I've studied the "getting started" as well as the boost build documentation
and I can't see how one is expected to specify all the toolsets he uses.
FYI in my case I want to use the following:
I expect to find a place - with a syntax to specify it - a set of path names
for each of the above. If its in the documents it certainly doesn't jump
out at me.
