Subject: [Boost-build] Boost with Eclipse

I'm trying to build the boost libraries for use with the MinGW compiler
for use with Eclipse.

Now that the MinGW files can be downloaded from within Eclipse, the
default paths for finding MinGW don't apply to the scripts included with
the boost libraries.

I'm not the first person to notice this. This fine fellow has written a
nice blog entry about how to modify the bootstrap and the build.bat
files to get the boost libraries to build for MinGW under windows from
the Eclipse install:

After following his tips (and finding the new locations for the
build.bat file), I'm now getting this error: "This program can’t start
because mspdb100.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the
program to fix this problem."

Any tips on getting the boost libraries to build to use the MinGW that
is downloaded via Eclipse?

Many thanks,

Oliver Sampson
