ok.... I build bjam.exe using the build.bat file that comes w/ the source
when you get everything from CVS. I'm running on WinXP Pro and vs.net2003
is my normal compiler.
This build happens every day, then I use the fresh bjam to build boost
bjam -sTOOLS=vc7.1 install
..... I also try ....
bjam --v2

I also have devcpp installed and cygwin... (which means I have gcc
installed somewhere)

last night I was helping a guy on a project we're starting on using linux
and cygwin... I opened cygwin and cd'd to the same directory I get my
overnight updates to boost from

vawjr_at_baslim /cygdrive/c/Projects/boost
I then typed
bjam -sTOOLS=gcc install

it ran for a long time (I went to bed)
this morning I looked and it had build 3500+ things and failed on around 78
mostly they were program_options and python

so I typed again
bjam -sTOOLS=gcc install

and I got that little dialog from Microsoft that says basically "bjam
messed up, do you want to send a report?"

there was no other output from bjam that I could see

I tried simply bjam and it seemed to try to re-build stuff using vc71 in
part of the path, but still had things like:
in it.
that run ended with:

Creating library
and object
...updated 214 targets...

I followed that with:
vawjr_at_baslim /cygdrive/c/Projects/boost
$ bjam
...found 7544 targets...

vawjr_at_baslim /cygdrive/c/Projects/boost
$ bjam -sTOOLS=gcc
rewards me with the dialog and nothing else
