Hi, I am trying to build boost under windows 7. I did the following steps: * Download the boost zip file from unpack it somewhere. * Download the bjam executable from unpack it somewhere else. * Download Boost.Build (v2) from unpack it yet somewhere else. * Edit the file boost-build.jam in the main boost directory to change the BOOST_BUILD directory to the place where you put Boost.Build (use UNIX / instead of Windows \ in pathnames). * Copy the bjam.exe executable into the main boost directory. Now if you issue "bjam --version" you should get a version and no errors. Issueing "bjam --show-libraries" will show the libraries that will be built. I get the version correct with no errors, but when I try  "bjam --show-libraries", I get the following error: configure.jam: No such file or directory and I can not go any further.  I could not figure out what is wrong.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot.
