Build issues should really go to the Boost.Build list.

I'm not going to try and guess how your system is set up. Here are the
situations under which MinGW is supported...

1. If you install MinGW on the default path its installer suggests: C:\MinGW
you should be able to just do:

> cd <boost-root-dir-here>\tools\build\jam_src
> .\build.bat

And it will autodetect that installed location.

2. If MinGW is immediately executable, i.e. it's in your path, you can:

> cd <boost-root-dir-here>\tools\build\jam_src
> .\build.bat mingw

#2 should hold true for all toolsets supported.

I don't see anything in ..\tools\build\jam_src\index.html saying you need to
set those.

When does it guess MinGW? Did you not just say that it was not guessing MinGW
for you, above?

Which version of MinGW are you using??

I'd suggest joining at least one of the Boost lists. If you don't want much
traffic try the users list.
