I am not afraid to say its need more than this. After exporting the
above mentioned environment variable I issued a fresh build, but it lead
me to the same result. I am using the bjam 3.1.14 version for the build
purpose. Should I upgrade to bjam 3.1.15? I come to know from boost
mailing list a lot of patches and new features are gone into newest BJAM
version. One such patch is I found through the mailing list discussion
Set MAXLINE in jam.h to 23k bytes for AIX. The piecemeal archive
action was broken with the default MAXLINE of 102400. Because the AIX
shell uses some of the 24k default buffer size for its own use, I
reduced it to 23k. -- Noel B.:
Is this causing the problem?
BTW what's LDR_CNTRL for? :-)
