Subject: [boost] how to build boost with bzip2 in non-standard location?
From: Oliver Kullmann (O.Kullmann_at_[hidden])

I want to build the full boost library, while
I don't have bzip2 installed system-wide (but I
just downloaded and installed it locally).

It seems to me that
should be relevant here for that task, but I find the
descriptions too general to understand. I wonder whether
somebody could simply tell me the lines to be entered into
the bjam-configuration file?


bz2 : : <file> Path_to_libbz2.a ;

But how to specify where to find bzlib.h ?

Isn't it possible to specify the base directory, where then,
as, usual include, lib and bin are found?

Thanks in any case!
