I am getting frustrated attempting to use bjam outside of the boost
directory tree.

My system is Mandrake Linux 9.1.

I'm using the CVS head of boost obtained a few days ago.
Boost was built successfully with gcc v3.3 and testing boost::python
against python 2.3.2 seems to work. At least the getting_started2
extension module builds and works satisfactory.

My bjam reports with -v:
Boost.Jam Version 3.1.9. OS=LINUX.
Copyright 1993-2002 Christopher Seiwald and Perforce Software, Inc.

Copyright 2001-2002 David Abrahams.

Now I'm stuck attempting to use my project directory, which is outside
of the boost directory.

Boost related environment variables are:

I attempted to employ the file obtained from the boost
website and have changed it to reflect my environment as follows:

boost-build $(BOOST_BUILD_PATH) ;
path-global BOOST_ROOT : $(BOOST_ROOT) ;

Could somebody point out what I'm doing wrong?
