The Turbo C++ compiler should work without problems even if you
installed it in a different directory than the default one. I'd suggest
that you check that the version you have is indeed bcc32 5.8.2, by running

bcc32 -v

Which should output something like:

Borland C++ 5.82 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2005 Borland
Error E2266: No file names given

If it isn't 5.8.2 then you should probably install an update which
should be found at the CodeGear website. I don't expect this to be the
case, though.

Otherwise my user-config.file under tools\build\v.2 contains the
following line:

using borland : 5.8.2 : "C:/Programmi/Borland/BDS/4.0/Bin/bcc32" :
<cxxflags>-ID:/sf/bcbboost/spirit ;

The <cxxflags> part relates to using Spirit 1.6.x so that
Boost.Serialization works. It isn't needed if you don't care about the
serialization test results.

Hope this helps. By the way, tests appear to heve been running without
problems on Borland compilers at least since my last run.
