Subject: [Boost-build] Big trouble trying to build bjam in Windows XP sp3 because of the path and file names with white spaces

I'm having big troubles trying to build bjam in Windows XP sp3 because of the path and file names with white spaces.
I had to change the build.bat and the path of m TMP environment variable to get rid the problem.

But I believe that's not the intention with the build.
I use Borland (2007) from CodeGear. The executable is localized under the c:\program files\code gear
The TMP env var is usually C:\Documents and Setings\myaccount\Local Settings\Temp

As you see those are paths that the Build.jam uses automatically and therefore are difficult to change with the " " or ' '

Somebody who knows the right way to solve this problem
