Subject: [boost] need to get boost compiled so I can get Shareaza built

I'm trying to get the Shareaza source code to build in my local directory. When I try to build the only error I'm getting now is "Cannot open include file: 'boost/cstdint.hpp': No such file or directory". So it looks like I need to compile Boost. Some time back I went to the sourceForge "Developers.GettingStarted.Boost" page (I'd been referred there by a document that said I needed to compile Boost to be able to build Shareaza), and followed its instructions to the point of copying "bjam.exe" into my "boost_1_44_0\boost_1_44_0" directory, next to "boost.css".

The next thing it said to do was to open "a command prompt window, and navigate it to the boost_1_33_1 folder where bjam.exe is located," and then paste "the text below onto the command line, and press Enter." The text in question was "{{{1}}}". I assumed that what this meant was to execute "bjam {{{1}}}". But when I actually did execute "bjam {{{1}}}" I got the messages:

warning: No toolsets are configured.
warning: Configuring default toolset "msvc".
warning: If the default is wrong, your build may not work correctly.
warning: Use the "toolset=xxxxx" option to override our guess.
warning: For more configuration options, please consult

The docs said executing this command would cause a "C:\Boost" directory to be created, but one wasn't, so even if the error messages didn't look discouraging, it's pretty clear that I didn't accomplish what I needed to to get Shareaza compiled. And running the Shareaza build afterwards generated the complaint about "boost/cstdint.hpp" anyway.

So my question is, what do I have to do to get Boost compiled, so that I can go on and build Shareaza? I'd appreciate any information you can give me.
