   Forgot to mention in my previous post I tried it on Windows XP, not

   Also, I just tried it some more this morning including trying to fool
around with the BuildDir options but all paths kepts getting detected

   I did find a bug in doxygen.jam in case you specify an absolute build
dir and posted a patch for it but that does not seem to be related to
your problem.

   I also found a potential bug with some doxygen.xml.path xslt
parameter construction which was getting constructed using internal
Boost Build path format and not the native OS path format and was not
getting quoted so would not work correctly in case the path contained
spaces. The same patch adds several more quotes to the quickbook.jam &
doxygen.jam modules to give them more chance to work correctly with
paths containing spaces.

   Hope this helps.
