Trawling about on google I came upon these facts specific to DJGPP. that gcc
can't accept a command line longer than 127 characters. I confirmed this by
attempting to invoke gcc with parameter list longer than 127 characters,
whereupon I got the aforesaid error-message:
"The system cannot execute the specified program". I presume not all versions of
DJGPP act like this. Either that or no-one tries to build boost with this system
on Windows

Anyway its identified the cause of the problem , which is a start!
