It has to be run in MSYS, as I explained at . Here are slightly more detailed

0. You're running x86, so you need 7-Zip's x86 7za.exe, which I removed
between distro 10.3 and 10.4. Instead of downgrading to distro 10.3, you can
download it from . It's the "7-Zip
Command Line Version". Just put 7za.exe in C:\MinGW\bin, it's a stand-alone

1. Download
2. Extract it.
3. Run my extract.bat (it's a one-liner).
4. Run msys.bat to launch MSYS.
5. See C:\MinGW\scripts-10.4\ for my Boost build script (the patches
I use are also in that directory).

WARNING: Read my "Important notes" in #build, which explain the directory
assumptions. In particular, you should "run" my build script by copying and
pasting one line at a time into MSYS and carefully watching the output.


P.S. x86 is dead! :->
