Subject: [Boost-build] using /home installed gcc

are there instructions anywhere on how to get bjam to find and use a
custom gcc? that is, I want to try a more recent version of gcc, so I
downloaded and installed v4.5.2 with --prefix=/home/amosa. bjam was
able to find it, but I was getting link errors with ln
ignored the version I think it's supposed to use in
/home/amosa/lib/, and when I used link flags to grab it,
ln complained it was "incompatible". now, I may not have
compiled/installed my compiler correctly... but that step seemed
pretty straight forward...

the instructions I found:

seem to presume that the compiler I want to use, with all associated
libraries, are in /usr/bin. can anybody give me an example with the
correct "using" structure?
