> Well, you've got stlport installed, that's good.

I have now installed:
STLport-4.6.2 that I hope gets rid of issues of "Old".

My command line is now this monstrosity:

bjam "-sTOOLS=dmc-stlport" "-sDMC_ROOT=C:\DM"
"-sBUILD<sysinclude>C:\DM\STLport-4.6.2" "-sIC:\DM\STLport-4.6.2"

Still can not find "utility", but at least this time I understand why:

-Ar -ND -I"bin\boost\libs\date_time\build"
-I"C:\DM\STLport-4.6.2\STLport-4.6.2\stlport" -I"C:\Boost_1_32_0"

Note this one in the above:

If I do not set "-sSTLPORT_PATH=C:\DM\STLPORT-4.6.2" bjam complains that
it is not set,
when I do set it, it becomes recursive. What are the magic words I need
to make bjam
happy and really use the directories that I tell it to use?

I could recursively copy STLport-4.6.2 but that seems kind of silly.

Also DM really wants STLport in "STLport" not "STLport-4.6.2", where bjam
seems to want it. I can probably set up an XP junction (symbolic link)
to solve that problem.

Yahoo ate your "attached toolset" can you try again please?
