Boost-Build :

I'm starting an app which will use boost. I'd like to move from make to
bjam, but I'm still getting my head around

Right now I'm stuck on a simple problem: With bjam the link command is
not finding the boost libs...

I built boost successfully for vc-7_1. Headers headers & libs installed
into C:\Boost...


I'm running Boost.Build from the boost-build-2.0-m11.tar.bz2 in

In building a small Boost.Threads app the linker is clearly not finding
the libs:

% bjam
...found 258 targets...
...updating 2 targets...
compile-c-c++ bin\msvc\debug\CreateThread.obj
CreateThread.cpp bin\msvc\debug\CreateThread.exe
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file
...updated 2 targets...

In ./boost-build.jam I have:

boost-build c:\\boost-build ;

and in ./Jamroot:

   : requirements <include>c:/Boost/include/boost-1_33_1
exe CreateThread : CreateThread.cpp ;
