I have the same problem as Vjaceslav, except that I want to use GCC instead
of MS Visual Studio. I have MinGW, but I read on the Boost website (not
happy with the documentation there!) that MSYS may not work, so I'm using
the Windows command prompt (MSYS gives the same error anyway).
As for V. Prus' simple suggestion:
1. Unpack boost
2. Run ".\bootstrap.bat"
3. Run ".\bjam.exe", optionally adding your --prefix and --build-dir and
that does not work for several reasons. Beside the fact that unpacking Boost
does not include bjam.exe, running bootstrap.bat results in the following
-- Building Boost.Jam build engine 'cl' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Failed to build Boost.Jam build engine. Please consult bjam.log for furter diagnostics. You can try to obtain a prebuilt binary from http://sf.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=7586&package_id=72941 Also, you can file an issue at http://svn.boost.org Please attach bjam.log in that case. -- Plus, there is no bjam.log in the BOOST_ROOT directory. Downloading and running bjam.exe gives the long error that Vjaceslav (ÐÑÑÐµÑÐ»Ð°Ð²) posted already. Since I don't use MSVC, I cannot follow his example. Any suggestions? -- View this message in context: http://boost.2283326.n4.nabble.com/How-to-built-boost-tp3053130p3353885.html Sent from the Boost - Build mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
