When I try to build, I get an "extra argument g++-3.2" error:

/usr/share/boost-build/build/toolset.jam:29: in using
*** argument error
* rule gcc.init ( version ? : command * : options * )
* called with: ( 3.2 g++-3.2 : : : : : : : )

* My gcc version is "(GCC) 3.3.4 (Debian 1:3.3.4-13)".

* My bjam version is "Boost.Jam Version 3.1.10. OS=LINUX".

* The /usr/share/boost-build/user-config.jam file simply specifies
'using gcc' without any version number.

I installed bjam using 'apt-get install bjam' and I installed
boost-build by using dpkg-buildpackage to create the package from
bbv2-m10. I'm calling bjam with 'bjam --v2'

Do I need to compile bjam executable from source instead of using the
debian package already available online or am I doing something else wrong?
