Subject: [Boost-build] Building Boost with MinGW

  Newbie question: I am trying build Boost with MinGW using bjam from
inside MSys, the Bash-like interface supplied with MinGW.

When I invoke bjam with the "--toolset=mingw" option (as detailed in
Table A.1 of the Boost.Build docs), I get a set of error messages like
"mingw.jam: No such file of directory" and "rule mingw.init unknown in
module toolset", all of which imply that "mingw" is not a valid option.

How do I build Boost with MinGW?
