Nice... my preferred platform ;-) Too bad my 4000T is now less powerful
than my VCR :-(

It's not supposed to be complaining. Do you have the entire Boost tree?
Specifically do you have the "[boost-root]/tools/build/v1" directory?
What is the exact error message? What directories does it say it search
for the Boost.Build system? Perhaps the directory searching is broken on

If you do have the build/v1 directory, try adding it to the build search
path to see if you get a different result. For example:

bjam -sBOOST_BUILD_PATH=/some/place/boost/tools/build/v1 ...

Just as you did. And you can also use the "--without" options to exclude
libraries you don't want built, but that doesn't help for the examples.
And in the next release there is also a "--with" option to only build
specified libraries.
