I've wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how things are supposed
to work together path wise:

For MSVC auto links the boost libraries so it requires
nothing in the jamefile.

For GCC I've done this:

lib utils : utils.cpp /boost/filesystem//fs ;

As mentioned at


error: Unable to find file or target named
error: '/boost/filesystem//fs'
error: referred from project at
error: '.'

I don't even know the syntax of the /boost/filesystem//fs part or where
it looks for this, and I'm having a hard time finding any documentation
about it.

However, when I call bjam in my project folder It finds 1300 targets or
so, which I assume is because it picks up boost. So why doesn't it find
the lib?

Help would be greatly appreciated.
