Since posting this message, I have determined the cause of my
problem. The ...*.cmd file contains the following line:

g\runtime-link-static\execution_monitor.obj" &

which looks OK except that the borland library manager (I don't know
about the linker yet) chokes on the '/' character. This comes from
the fact that I use a korn shell under NT which passes a unix like
string for BOOST_LOCATE_ROOT or?.

I can make this work for my purposes and mayby my situation is so
unique its not worth worrying about but:

a) none of the other toolsets have this problem
b) is fairly time-consuming to track down.

I don't no if someone wants to tweeak borland-tools.jam to replace
the / characters in path names with \ . I really don't have a lot of
confidence in my BJAM skills so I'm reluctant to do - though I'll
spend a little time at it.
