However, when trying to use bjam I'm running into following problems:
(Can somebody help?)

OK. I have found out myself one more detail:
Working locally on windows I have not taking care for output folders. This
has changed when also testing bjam with unix on my project. I added
following to the Jamroot then:

local HOSTNAME = [ modules.peek : HOSTNAME ] ;

project my_project
    : ....some stuff....
    : build-dir ../Binaries/$(HOSTNAME)/groupingConcrete

The result was working fine on all linux versions (Red Hat, SuSE)
NOW, the windows build does also print this error message and the reason
simply is that the environment variable HOSTNAME was not present. Adjusting
the environment variable everything was working fine again. Of course this
was the same problem on the sun machine!
