I have installed Boost 1.55 (+python33), boost-build and boost-jam through Macports on Mac OS X 10.9. Following the HOWTO (, I cd to /opt/local/share/doc/boost/libs/python/example/quickstart and typed in "bjam toolset=gcc --verbose-test test" and "bjam" and I got the following error message:

/opt/local/share/boost-build/build/project.jam:271: in find-jamfile from module project
error: Unable to load Jamfile.
error: Could not find a Jamfile in directory '../../../..'.
error: Attempted to find it with pattern '[Bb]uild.jam [Jj]amfile.v2 [Jj]amfile [Jj]amfile.jam'.

/opt/local/share/doc/boost/libs/python/example/quickstart/boost-build.jam:7: in module scope from module

What was wrong?
