It's hard to suggest anything given that I don't see the log file

Some of the examples depends on third-party tools/libraries,
for example gettext and qt/*. However, the 'make' example
should work. If it does not, do you have the output?

The most likely reason for such whole-sale failures is
inability for find bjam by the self-test system, or bad
user-config.jam. It's hard to say more without seeing
the errors.

Just archive it in some common format and post.
