   Hi Paul.

   Hmm... this line seems fishy... You sure you have not specified some
path like this using back-slashes in some Jamfile without duplicating
them and got them interpreted as escape characters instead of path

   The rest of the messages do not seem to be build system related, but
do seem clear enough.

   The rest of the post, assumes you are a developer and not someone
just trying to install the library on the system as some other project's
requirements. If this is not so - the Boost library users list seems
like your best bet.

   It should not be too difficult for you to look at these sources, see
what the identifiers mentioned in the error messages are, google for
them, see what headers need to be included for them, and see what
headers are actually included by the compiler. That should get you the
answer to why this is happening soon enough.

   Could be some configuration error, or could be a bug in Boost with it
not supporting your exact configuration correctly enough. In case of the
latter you should be able to come up with a patch. Problems with
includes are generally not difficult to track down. The only thing
needed to track them down is access to the environment producing the
error, which is what you have and most likely the person on the other
side of the mailing list does not so I think your best bet is to try and
see if you get lucky on the Boost users mailing list but also go and
track down the source of the problem yourself.

   Hope this helps.
