No worries, missing the attachment is a frequent occurance for all of us ;-)

OK, that's good to hear :-)
I think the suggestion to separate the build from the install is a good one.
At minimum it will give users a chance abandon the install if there are
problems. And it would certainly help in testing to only do the build step.
The only problem I see is that the easy way to separate the two would make
the user repeat the arguments from the build step on the install step. For
$ bjam -sTOOLS=gcc-3.2.3 --prefix=/opt
$ bjam -sTOOLS=gcc-3.2.3 --prefix=/opt install
Any thoughts on wether that's acceptable?
It would be possible to remove the extra args, but it would require a bit
more work and the use of a file to store the args. Which is something
probably easier done in BBv2.
