I've been using bjam to compile a bot library in linux using debian
sarge. Everything is fine and dandy on there, however I would like to
compile the bot using gcc 2.95 for a couple of the games we support,
because some administrators still run old versions and for whatever
reason aren't always able to upgrade their linux game servers.

So I install debian woody, and also tried suse 8.1 and of course the
bjam executable we are using was compiled with glibc 2.3 so it wont
work, also I am unable to compile bjam on this platform either.

Following the instructions on didn't
work. bjam wouldn't compile. matter o fact, I couldn't even compile
bjam on the newer debian sarge. I also tried pre-build bjam and the
oldest one not compiled with glibc 2.3 is 3.1.4 which when tried it
said our jam file required 3.1.7 or newer.

Anyone have any advice for getting bjam working in an older distro?
Any help is appreciated.
