Hey all,

I'm trying to build my project using an old version of GCC available from
MinGW (gcc-2.95.3-8-20020922-1 from What is the correct way to
get boost-build to use it? The executable name is g++2, so it doesn't
recognize it by default. There were lots of suggestions elsewhere, but
none of them seem to work. I've tried something along these lines:

        bjam --toolset=gcc -sTOOLS=mingw-2.0
-sMINGW_ROOT_DIRECTORY="F:\Dependencies\mingw\gcc-2.95.3-8" release

It seems like something along these lines is correct, but nothing has
worked so far. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
