I am trying to build BJam so that I can build Boost libraries for MinGW on
Vista x64 box. I'm following the instructions on the Boost "Building BJam"
page (http://www.boost.org/boost-build2/doc/html/jam/building.html), to
obtain the make file to build the Boost libraries.
I cd to the jam src directory and type
$ sh ./build.sh
It finds MinGW, compiles, and then stores jam0 in ./bootstrap directory. (a
side note, my anti-virus software doesn't like jam0, since it keeps erasing
It was my understanding that it will build the BJam make exec, and store it
Am I missing something?
I am grateful for any help. Thanks in advance,
