I don't use this configuration. I use cygwin+gcc+doxygen for everything.

Great, thanks.

Yes, this sounds like exactly the problem.

I see these errors too. I don't know what they mean.

That's nothing to worry about.

Hmm, that looks like my bug.

You probably get those warnings when building quickbook. They can be
ignored for now -- it'll be fixed later. You can avoid rebuilding
quickbook by putting something like this in your user-config.jam:

using quickbook : /home/ericne/boost/org/trunk/dist/bin/quickbook.exe ;
