Petrus: the compile failure you are seeing is from one of our test cases
that *isn't supposed to build* (we have tests that verify that incorrect
usage generates a compiler error).

What is it exactly you are trying to build? Looks to me like you have
invoked the Jamfile in /status/ which is designed for *testing* Boost, and
would have to run using bjam not Eclipse.

Have you read and followed the getting started instructions: ?

Alternatively, if you must build from with Eclipse: create a new (static or
shared) library project and add the filesystem source files to it (from
libs/filesystem/src/*.cpp), and build it. That's it :-)

HTH, John.
