Dear Andy,

attached you can find an instruction on how to build boost with VC 7.1 on WinXP. I distributed this instruction to my my group. Inside you may find some comments on Python issues. Maybe it helps to fix your problem.

Regards and a happy new year,

Betreff: [Boost-build] bjam --v2 python warnings


 I have been following the boostbook tutorial and invoked bjam --v2 in
$BOOST_ROOT/libs/function/doc as described in the section "Configuring local
DocBook XSL and DTD distributions".

The function - html documents were constructed ok, but I got a lot of warnings:

warning: Python location is not configured
warning: the Boost.Python library won't be built
Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(and if you don't know what ICU is then you probably don't need it).
warning: no toolsets are configured.
warning: you won't be able to build C++ programs.
warning: please consult the documentation.

I have attempted to configure Python by setting PYTHON_ROOT . I dont understand
what else I need to do to deal with this.
I have also invoked bjam with -sTOOLS=<mytoolset> to try to suppress the no
toolsets warning to no avail, so again I dont understand why I get the warning
regarding "no toolsets being configured".
Is there anything else I need to do to configure Python for Bjam?
Is there anything else I need to do to configure my toolsets?
As far as Regex is concerned I am mystified as to why I am building it at this
time, as I have built it previously.

Is it possible to get rid of these warnings?

Any help appreciated .
