When working on windows, I again hit a problem with spaces in my include
path. So I wonder if I'm using the right syntax.

First I write in my user-config.jam following alias that points to the
include directory (of MPICH version 2 in this case)

lib libmpi : : <file>C:\\"Program Files"\\MPICH2\\lib\\libmpich2.a : :
<include>C:/"Program Files"/MPICH2/include ;

Next I have a simple file
#include <mpi.h>
int main() { return 0 ;}

and corresponding Jamfile
exe tt : tt.cpp /user-config//libmpi ;

and bjam-ing it gives me following error (remark that it mentions the
path 'Files\MPICH2\include' so apparantly the space in the include path
breaks the include path in two):

...found 14 targets...
