It means that Jamfile.v2 at libs/filesystem/build refers to a file called
'exception.cpp', which can't be found. Do you have that file in the
If yes, then I think something wrong in path.jam for OS/2. I'd suggest two
1. Try current Boost CVS. We did not added support for OS/2, but it would be
simpler to find the bug
2. Run "bjam --v2 -d+5". That will produce a long output. Find the last
invocation of the GLOB function, and tell me the parameters. The question is
whether V2 passes wrong argument to GLOB, or GLOB is broken on OS/2.
