Great! Thanks for this.

Eehm, I know it is not related to AutoIndex, and it is probably my or a
few people's problem. I've googled, at least some other (Boost) people
have had this as well.

I get this error while building:

/*error: Attempt to redeclare already existing project id
'/boost/exception' location '/_svn/boost/trunk/libs/exception/build'
I've had this also when building Boost.Geometry. Then I could solve it
by removing Jamroot, or adding one. It is only on Microsoft, not on
Linux or MinGW. The error always says "exception", strange thing...

Do other people using MSVC have (had) this problem?

Strangely enough it sometimes occurs, so last time I could build
autoindex, now I couldn't do it (yet).

Anyway, I will try soon again, probably using Linux, and let you know.

Regards, Barend
