I am struggling to get a version of
boost jam built for mingw.
build.bat gcc-nocygwin produces
an executable that doesnt quite work,
due to DOS-like filenames given to
commands when creating dirs and lib archives.
This seems to be the executable that is floating
around the net under the banner of a boost jam
that is built for mingw.

The trouble seems to be that mingw is neither NT,
nor is it POSIX-y enough for the POSIX files
(fileunix.c etc) to be used.

In desperation I hacked jam.h to force
NT on and tried to build from mys
with the command " cc", with
CC set to gcc. This gets me slightly further
but fails with a very weird error:-

rm. clean
Invalid switch - "yyacc.exe".

Any ideas?
