Hi Steven,

Thanks a lot for your help, the last you gave works... partially ;) so
effectively the installed libraries are not re-installed every time i
run bjam but it copies them twice, once in the specified installed
directory and once in the current directory so this has no effect in the
example because i installed them in the current directory but if you try
to install them somewhere else you'll see that it keeps installing in
the current directory + the specified directory.

Try it with this code :

use-project boost : ../source/trunk/libs/boost ;

# Project Configuration
    : build-dir build
    : requirements
    : source-location
install system : /boost/system :
install filesystem : /boost/filesystem :

exe test : main.cpp ;

The generated boost dlls end up in both current and dlls directories.

I think the most difficult is done, just need to fix that small issue
and i will be perfect !!!

One more time thank you very you are going to make us save a lot of time
