Boost-Build :

I've tried to install the Boost libraries, and apparently failed. I'm
running WinXP SP2, and I have VC++ 6.0 installed. I downloaded
boost_1_33_1.exe, and ran it. That caused many files to be
extracted into a directory structure. Good.

I downloaded, extracted bjam.exe from
that, and put it into a directory that's on my PATH.

I opened a command window, and ran my VCVARS32.bat file, to set
environment variables. I navigated to the Boost directory, and gave
this command:

bjam "sTools=msvc" install

And got this result (after LOTS and LOTS of stuff scrolled by):

... failed updating 948 targets ...
... skipped 412 targets ...
... updated 3785 targets ...

It seems to have copied all the header files to where they are
supposed to be, but the lib subdirectory of the installation directory
is empty. So I must have done something wrong, but I have no clue

What did I miss?
