Subject: [Boost-build] Can I include environment variables in user-config.jam?
From: Michael Krajnak (michael.krajnak_at_[hidden])

I'm currently building boost with stlport.

In order to do this I made various changes to user-config.jam file based
on a variety of examples I found on the net.

Those changes include things like the following:

using stlport : 5.2.1 :
D:/dev/stlport/stlport :
D:/dev/stlport/libx86 ;

I would like to replace the string D:/dev/stlport with an environment
variable, but I can't get this to work. I've seen various discussions
about this on some of the boost forums, including some that suggested
that user-config.jam might not be the best place to do this, but never
an example that I could follow completely.

Could someone provide a complete example of how to include an
environment variable in user-config.jam? Or if there is a
recommendation for a different way to achieve the same effect I'd be
glad to give it try.
