Hi! Newbie here, so be gentle. I'm having trouble
installing/building. My OS is XPPro2002SP1. I'm installing boost in
the hopes of using boost.python to interface existing wxWidgets C++
and wxPython code. I'm following the "Getting Started" document, and
get as far as invoking bjam; the command line I'm using is

bjam "-sTOOLS=vc-7_1-stlport" --builddir=.
--with-python-root=c:\Program Files\Python23 install

The result is:

Failed to find the project root for directory '.'.
Did not find a project-root.jam file there or in any of its parent

I searched and found several project-root.jam files, but half of them
are empty, and they're all in one of boost-build\test,
boostbuild\example, or boost-build\doc, which hardly seem general enough.

Please help. Thanks!


PS: If you could cc: your response directly to my email, that'd be
appreciated. Thanks again.
