First, I had trouble getting jam to build so I found the mac osx
version in a file named boost-jam-3.1.13-1-macosxppc.tgz. running bjam

William-Taylors-Computer.352% bjam -v
Boost.Jam Version 3.1.13. OS=MACOSX.

I downloaded the source code file boost_1_33_1.gz

I went to libs/configure, ran the ./configure script and copied
user.hpp to boost/config.

The commands
bjam -sTOOLS=darwin project-root.jam
bjam -sTOOLS=darwin boost-build.jam

both ran to completion without error.

However, when I used the command

  bjam -sTOOLS=darwin install

there were a huge number of errors. Many of them complain about the
copy command not being found, but there were compilation errors too.

convenience.cpp:43: error: `
   ph' was not declared in this scope

The last few messages were:

...failed FileClone
/bin/sh: line 2: copy: command not found

unput_queue_iterator.hpp" >NUL:

...failed FileClone

What am I doing wrong?
