Boost-Build :

I was trying to build boost on my laptop running Windows XP with SP2.
I downloaded the .exe file and unpacked it on my desktop that is
"C:\Documents And Settings\Administratör\Skrivbord\"
(administratör = administrator in swedish, skrivbord = desktop in swedish).
Put the bjam.exe file in there and tried to build
with "-sTOOLS=vc-8_0". And here starts the problem, it doesn't build, it
complains about that it cant find the dir
and therefor it fails to copy all the files.
The only solution to this problem was to unpack the boost-install-dir in C:\
(or D:\) and build it from there.
Doesn't Jam-files support spaces in dirs or letters that aren't in the
standard alphabet (a-z A-Z 0-9) like åäö?
