The VeecoFTC user-config.jam is a good part of the reason I've gotten as far
as I have. If that's yours, then thank you. It's been very helpful. Below is
the my addition to my user-config.jam file that I based on the VeecoFTC one.

using msvc : WM5 :
    "cl.exe" :
    <assembler>"armasm.exe "

I've been using this command line to compile:
bjam --without-python --without-mpi

Obviously, I'm still missing something, though. Can you tell from this what
that is?
