Hi all,

I'm trying to do a completely vanilla install on MinGW - following the
instructions on the "Getting Started" page. Nothing tricky or clever or
complicated, just install out of the box following the instructions. It
doesn't work. Specifically:

I do the configure:

   $ ./configure --with-libraries=filesystem
   Building Boost.Jam with toolset mingw... tools/jam/src/bin.ntx86/bjam
   Unicode/ICU support for Boost.Regex?... not found.
   Generating Boost.Build configuration in user-config.jam...
   Generating Makefile...

OK so far - this generates a user-config.jam file:

   $ cat user-config.jam
   # Boost.Build Configuration
   # Automatically generated by Boost configure

   # Compiler configuration
   using mingw ;

I now try make:

   $ make
   ./tools/jam/src/bin.ntx86/bjam --user-config=user-config.jam
   mingw.jam: No such file or directory
   e:/msys/boost_1_35_0/tools/build/v2/build\toolset.jam:38: in
toolset.using rule mingw.init unknown in module toolset.
   e:/msys/boost_1_35_0/tools/build/v2/build\project.jam:828: in using
   e:\msys\boost_1_35_0\user-config.jam:5: in modules.load
   e:/msys/boost_1_35_0/tools/build/v2\build-system.jam:240: in load-config
   e:/msys/boost_1_35_0/tools/build/v2\build-system.jam:369: in
   e:/msys/boost_1_35_0/tools/build/v2\build-system.jam:501: in load
   e:\msys\boost_1_35_0\tools\build\v2/kernel\modules.jam:267: in import
   e:\msys\boost_1_35_0\tools\build\v2/kernel/bootstrap.jam:132: in
   e:\msys\boost_1_35_0\boost-build.jam:11: in module scope
   Not all Boost libraries built properly.

I have tried variation - using toolset gcc and running bjam directly,
but no joy. Can anyone tell me what is going wrong - what am I missing.
I cannot find any references to mingw.jam anywhere in the archives or in
the documentation.
