Subject: [Boost-build] Boost build error msvc 9.0 ia64 itanium
From: Pete (pete_at_[hidden])

I'm trying to build boost 1.34.1 using bjam as follows (the -d2 switch gives
a bit more info what is happening, though it is still a bit cryptic):

bjam toolset=msvc-9.0 architecture=ia64 stage -d2

Building Boost.Regex with the optional Unicode/ICU support disabled.
Please refer to the Boost.Regex documentation for more information
(don't panic: this is a strictly optional feature).
...found 5021 targets...
...updating 1765 targets...





At this stage I get a silly dialog telling me that Windows 7 doesn't know
what to do with rsp files.

I have all the 64 bit VS 2009 components installed, configured and setup.
Also, before invoking bjam, I executed bjam, I executed the vc commandline
environment setup batch file:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\vcvars64.bat"

If I type "cl" at the command line, I get:

Microsoft (R) C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 15.00.30729.01 for x64

Where am I going wrong?
