Boost-Build :

I finally got all this working under cygwin. I needed to build a cygwin
version of bjam.exe AND move the boost-sandbox project alongside the
main boost project. Neither was sufficient on its own.

I find it odd that I would need to do either. Other windows executables
run fine under cygwin -- why not bjam? And how come I couldn't get bjam
to read the BOOST_ROOT environment variables, and failing that, how come
adding <sysinclude>$(BOOST_ROOT) to my Jamfile as Dave suggested didn't
work either? I'm confused.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestions. I'd have never figured that out on
my own.
