Boost-Build :

Hello all,

I got the latest nightly build (timestamp Tue Jun 12 17:34:40 MSD 2007) and
I can't build bjam on win32.
When I go into boost-build\jam_src and run build.bat on a dos box, I get the

Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 x86 tools.
\Utilities\Bin\x86";c:\cygwin\bin;[rest of my path goes here]" was
unexpected at this time.

My path starts as follows:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX SDK (August
2006)\Utilities\Bin\x86";c:\cygwin\bin;[rest of my path goes here]

I think build.bat gets confused with the brackets of the DirectX SDK part of
the path, i.e. the "(August 2006)" bit.
Any ideas how to fix this?
