Hi All,

Please disregard my last email. I tried again from scratch and I made 2
changes to my setup:

- upgraded bjam.v11 to bjam.v13
- changed the buffer size from 2047 to 8192 in jam_src/execnt.c -
without this, a build will fail

    /* Set the maximum command line length according to the OS */
    return is_nt_351 ? 996
        : is_win95 ? 1023
        : 8192;

(According to on XP this is ok).

This runs a full build. But I feel this is only a temporary solution:
eventually we will run out of space again.

It is possible to split up things? Or split paths, I mean now the full
path including drive letter, but it could start from project root. Or
maybe all targets could be copied to 1 dir (bin/dep ?) before running
the test: then the path is set once instead of taking all paths of all
dependencies ...

I am not sure what is wise.

Regards, Dirk
