I'm running the boost regression tests under cygwin for vc7.1 using
the "run_tests.sh" script (though I presume that script doesn't fall
under the purview of this group). In any case, part of that script's
functionality is to build bjam (apparently every time it runs) and use
that binary to run the regression tests. To build bjam it executes
build.sh in the jam_src directory.
Now it appears that this newly-built bjam binary differs from the bjam
binary I downloaded from the boost website in that the
prebuilt binary works :). The locally built one results in errors of the
CALL: not found
followed by some other gobbeldy-gook (sorry, I accidentally blew away
my capture of the error messages. I can regenerate them later if the
above is not sufficient). If I set the script to use the downloaded
binary, however, everything works like a charm.
I am curious if anyone else has run across something similar and if
there might be any suggestions for building an effective bjam locally .
