Subject: [Boost-build] Boost 1.37 will not build for me on Windows

I've used boost before, I've used jam before. Something about 1.37 doesn't like me.....

So I downloaded all the sources for 1.37, I went and ran the bjam
build.bat file. It correctly identified my compiler as vc7. (2003.NET)

bjam --help works. I can get a print of my options. When I then try to run it, I get very wierd errors:

--includedir="c:\ler\boost\" --libdir="c:\ler\boost\win32"
--with-filesystem --builddir="c:\ler\build"

C:\RTI\devroot\packages-src\boost\boost-build.jam:16: in module scope

Anyone got any ideas here?

My user-config.jam has
using msvc
in it, but no other changes from the default.
