Hmm. Do you know what libraries these are corresponding to? Are
they all Boost-related?

   exe test : ... $(BOOST_ROOT)//wave ;

should work. You should see Boost.Wave being built and then
linked in. Hmmm. Can you try the static library versions:


If that works, can you try the shared library version:


You can rebuild everything by saying:

   bjam darwin-3.2 -a

and can print the commands that will be executed (-n):

   bjam darwin-3.2 -a -n

Can you see what version of the Boost libraries you are
linking against are being used (i.e. static/shared)?

Hmm. Do you know if the gfilt command line has gone over
the shell line limit (I don't think this is the case, though).

I don't know enough about the problem to know what the
solution is, but maybe my suggestions will help track down
the problem. If not, post again with as much information
as you can give that is relevant to the problem.
