Could someone please help with this problem?

$ cd /usr/local/
$ sudo svn export boost-trunk
# sudo ./
Bootstrapping is done. To build, run:


$ sudo ./b2 install -a
$ cd tools/build/v2/example
$ bjam
warning: mismatched versions of Boost.Build engine and core
warning: Boost.Build engine (bjam) is 03.1.17
warning: Boost.Build core (at /usr/local/boost-trunk/tools/build/v2) is

/usr/local/boost-trunk/tools/build/v2/example/boost-build.jam:6: in
module scope

Is the fix to be found here:


which says: [

Installing BJam after building it is simply a matter of copying the
generated executables someplace in your PATH.

$cd jam source location
$sh ./

For the Boost.Jam source included with the Boost distribution the jam
source location is BOOST_ROOT/tools/jam/src.


But BOOST_ROOT/tools/jam does not exist. Instead, I have

find . -name ""
find: ./bin.v2/config.log: Permission denied
find: ./bin.v2/libs: Permission denied
find: ./bin.v2: Permission denied

What to do? Thanks.
