Subject: [Boost-build] How to make binaries of boost using boost-build?

Dear boost-build list members, I would like to make binaries of boost library and from the "Getting started on Windows" user guide point 5.3: I have information that I have to install boost-build to help me make the binaries. I downloaded the zip file of boost-build from: but, there is no bootstrap in it. I downloaded the Nightly version, there is a bootstrap, but then the engine contains no b2. My questions are: 1. Where can I find the "complete" boost-build for Windows? 2. Is there any ready-to-use boost-library for Windows XP and Mingw, and the user-guide for using it? I am sorry, I am new to boost and boost-build so that I always need user-guide for using them. Here is my environment; - Windows XP SP3 - Mingw including msys 1.0 inside - I will use boost for my code that I build using Eclipse IDE - I think I will use boost version 1_51_0, or if you have suggestion which version that are more stable, you are welcome :). Any hints, answers would be highly appreciated! TIA, Tanya
