Boost-Build :

I'm trying to run the regression tests (using the
script) and in so doing provide a customized <compiler>-tools.jam file
but its not working.

In ~/src/boost-regression, I have the script and I've
created a new file called sunpro-5_3-tools.jam. From what I can tell, sets up the BOOST_BUILD path so it should be able to
locate these files in its directory. Here are the contents of

extends-toolset sunpro ;
flags sunpro C++FLAGS : -features=tmplife -instances=static ;

Basically I need to get these extra command line flags used with the
SunPRO compiler to fix various regression failures. When I run with --toolsets sunpro-5_3,gcc-3_4_3 however, nothing is

Here's a relevant section from the output:

# Found preinstalled "/home/nbde52d/src/boost-regression/bjam"; will use it.
# Starting tests (/home/nbde52d/src/boost-regression/bjam
-sTOOLS=sunpro-5_3 -d2 --dump-tests
>>/home/nbde52d/src/boost-regression/results/bjam.log 2>&1)...
# Getting test case results out of

And here is the tail end of the bjam.log:

boost-test(RUN) "simple_example_4" : "libs/tokenizer/simple_example_4.cpp"
boost-test(RUN) "simple_example_5" : "libs/tokenizer/simple_example_5.cpp"
boost-test(RUN) "tuple_test_bench" : "libs/tuple/test/tuple_test_bench.cpp"
boost-test(RUN) "io_test" : "libs/tuple/test/io_test.cpp"
don't know how to make -d2
don't know how to make --dump-tests
don't know how to make
...found 4 targets...
...can't find 4 targets...

I must be doing something wrong here. Whats the *right* way to do this?
