Can you elaborate? I don't see anything in sun.jam to that effect.

I'm afraid I don't know what's "Turbo C++", and if I understand discussion
on boost-devel correctly, you did not know that Turbo C++ exists until
recently as well. So, I have no idea what's "regular Turbo C++ installation"
is -- I think we might have to ask Borland experts.

Ok, nothing suspicious there.

Can you:

1. Try building the tools/build/v2/example/hello with borland,
and see if same error appears.

2. If so, try to build it with all permutations of


3. If 'hello' does not fail, try building your target with
the same permutations.

4. Try building an .cpp files containing just empty
main by hand.

Again, I don't know. Maybe borland experts will be able to help.
