 Have successfully built several versions of boost going back about 2
 years. Each build fails until I appropriately tweak the bootstrap and
 config scripts. For 1.65.1, the fix was pretty easy, requiring only a
 simply manual addition to


 Near the end of that script (the last toolset it checks) is mingw.
 Unfortunately, jam doesn't understand toolset mingw, so the toolset needs
 to be set to gcc. It doesn't work to call bootstrap.bat with gcc because
 then subsequent scripts assume either visual studior or msvc. The fix is
 to insert the line


 immediately after the line :Skip_INTEL_WIN32

 then run b2 with toolset=gcc.
