I'm trying to build the new boost 1.31.0 with VC++2003.

However, already at the 2nd step (as described by the getting started
guide) where I was trying to configure my tool by issuing:
bjam "-sVC71_ROOT=D:\Programs\VS2003\Vc7" I got several error
messages about python and paths with weird names - e.g.:
MkDir1 bin\boost\libs\thread\build\boost_thread.dll\vc7.1\D:\build
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Anyway, I thought that I *maybe* could ignore this so I entered the
3rd and 4th levels:
cd boost_1_31_0

At the 5th stage I invoked the build system as:
bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7.1" install
(Argh, why is stuff copied over to C:\Boost??)
Now I got:
...failed updating 12 targets...
...skipped 136 targets...
...updated 2218 targets...

Is this OK? I guess not... Where are the object files supposed to be
found? Under C:\Boost or under the directory where I extracted the
entire zip archive to (D:\C++\Boost_1_31_0)?

Has anyone been able to build boost1.31 with VC7.1?
If so, did you take the same steps as described above (and as
described by the getting started guide)?
If you managed to successfully build what steps did you take?

Thanks in advance!
