I am building a project with on Win2K using MSVC and am
getting the following error because my commands are longer than

vc-C++ actions too long (max 2047)!

In a previous post I saw that a possible solution to this was to set
the JAMSHELL to "%", but it seems like you would have to modify the
msvc-tools.jam file to make this work.

What is the best solution to this problem?

Sorry if this question has been asked a million times.

P.S. Is there a Boost FAQ anywhere?
